Here's a news release from Sgt. Dave Reagan:
Detectives are seeking the public’s help to identify a woman who stole a laptop computer from the Gonzaga Law Library.
Security video shows the thief (in front) entering the library with a child and a female companion about 7 p.m. on June 21. Detectives also want to identify the second female.
Witnesses saw the lead female near the laptop which had been left on a table top. No one in the library at the time recognized the thief as a student, and when she quickly exited the library carrying a backpack, one witness followed her.
The witness saw her retrieve the child and leave in a maroon or burgundy “American-looking” four-door car, according to police.
Gonzaga security staff was able to locate video of the suspect, the child and companion as they entered the library. The white female suspect is in the lead and was described as between 35 and 39 years old, 5’03” tall and 180 pounds..
Anyone with information about either woman’s identity is asked to contact Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
