FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - A car burglar is caught on video and police in Fort Worth are looking for her.

In the early morning hours on June 6, the woman was captured on surveillance video opening doors to cars parked in driveways on Whispering Pines Dr. in the Oak Creek Trails subdivision in far north Fort Worth.

"For whatever reason, she has decided to start looking into people's vehicles to see if they are unlocked and burglarized them," says Ofc. Brad Perez. "These vehicles were left unlocked when obviously we certainly preach that to our residents to not do that."

The woman didn't make off with anything of value.

"In one particular vehicle, she stole a lot of loose change," Perez says. "And then we found out that she actually hit another vehicle in the same area on a different date and took a spare car key out of that one."

Regardless, the woman will still be facing charges if and when she's caught.

"Even if you open a door or stick your hand inside a vehicle that is not yours with the intent to commit a crime, it's technically burglary of a vehicle right there," says Perez.

Police say if you recognize her, call 817-392-3188.
