BOW — Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a woman suspected of breaking into cars in town last month and stealing valuables.
Police said they received reports about 4:15 p.m. on Nov. 18, that several vehicles, mostly containing purses, were broken into while parked at a business off Tallwood Drive.
Police said the windows had been smashed on the vehicles.
Nov. 21, one of the victim’s cards were used to withdraw more than $9,000 from two Citizen’s Banks in Rhode Island, police said.
ATM footage captured a picture of the woman, who appears to be in her late 40’s or 50’s with short, brown hair.
She is believed to have been driving a white Ford Explorer with Massachusetts plates.
Police said she might be part of the Felony Lane Gang, an East Coast criminal organization known for break into cars and stealing debit cards, credit cards or cash.
Members of the group have been arrested elsewhere in New Hampshire, alleged to have committed similar crimes in Concord, Greenland, Hooksett, Northwood and Nottingham.
Gang members often use rental cars when committing crimes and tend to target daycare centers, fitness clubs and supermarkets, according to police officials who track the group.
There is a Felony Lane Gang Task Force based in Washington, D.C.
