Hawaiʻi Island police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a female who is suspected of stealing a black LG cell phone.

The victim reported that she forgot her phone on a counter at the Kailua-Kona Walmart on Aug. 15.

After reviewing video surveillance, it appears as if an unidentified woman picked up and concealed the victim’s phone.

The suspect is described as Caucasian/Hispanic, aged 35 to 40, 5-feet-four-inches tall, 140 pounds, long brown hair, with a tattoo near or on her neck.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the islandwide Crime Stoppers number at (808) 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
