Police have released this security footage of a woman suspected of using a credit card stolen in a home robbery just a few hours before

A late night theft has been caught on camera and the police are asking for any help to identify the person or people responsible.

A woman was filmed inside a home in the 6000 block of Reid Road on Aug. 22. The homeowners, and their children, were in the house sleeping when she broke in and stole belongings. She was wearing a hoodie and headphones while she looted the house.

Among the stolen items was a credit card, which was used at a local gas station just a few hours later. Again, a female suspect was caught on camera, this time without a hoodie. She has long blonde hair, and was wearing a dark jacket and jeans in the images in the gas station.

Anyone with any information about this crime is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or if you wish to remain anonymous Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
