San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the North Coastal Sheriff’s Station are asking for the public’s help to locate an unknown suspect wanted in connection with two burglaries that occurred in the North County.

On Oct. 19, 2016 at about 10 a.m. an unknown suspect broke into a vehicle that was parked at the Lomas Santa Fe County Club and stole three credit cards from the victim’s purse. The Lomas Santa Fe Country Club is located at 1505 Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach.

At about 12:30 p.m. on the same day, a female suspect attempted to purchase about $1200 worth of merchandise at the Target store, located at 3150 Business Park in Vista but the transaction was declined.
