The Ocala Police Department is looking for a woman accused of stealing clothes from an outdoor Goodwill drop off area in southwest Ocala.
A store employee told OPD officers that on several occasions in the last month, a woman driving a brown Chevrolet sedan (Florida license plate: APC007) was seen stealing clothes from the store’s outdoor clothing donation bin, according to an OPD incident report.
The employee estimated that the woman stole about $1,000 worth of clothing.
Police have not made an arrest.
If you have any information, please contact OPD at (352) 369-7000.
