NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for a suspect they say is responsible for a pair of grand larcenies in Manhattan.

Authorities said that back on Nov. 17 of last year, a 27-year-old victim realized her wallet containing a Chase Visa and MasterCard, among other items, was missing at the Borough Hall Street subway station.

A few days later, a female suspect walked into a Chase Bank at Eighth Avenue and West 15th Street and withdrew $2,000 from that victim’s Chase account.

Police now believe the same suspect is responsible for another incident that occurred on Jan. 31 in the East Village.

Authorities said a victim discovered her wallet was missing and also told police that ATM withdrawals were made from her Bank of America account.

The suspect is described as a white female, between 25 and 30 years old, 5-foot-3 and between 110 and 125 pounds with dark-colored hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
