suspect photo The Polk County Sheriff's Office would like to identify the woman seen here, so detectives can speak to her about a missing cell phone.

On July 9th, a young boy was with his mother in the Circle K store at 2109 W. Memorial Blvd, Lakeland and the child set his cell phone down to get a Polar Pop. He accidentally left the phone sitting on the counter at the Polar Pop machine and exited the store.

Ten minutes later, Mom realized the boy didn't have his phone, so she returned to the store, but it was too late...the phone was gone.

Security video from the store shows a white (possibly Hispanic) female at the Polar Pop counter where the phone is. She can be seen moving closer to the phone, looking around, and then as she moves away, the phone is no longer there.

If you recognize the woman, please contact Detective Marshall at 863-577-1625 (Case #22-28492).
