TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for a woman who they say stole three charge cards at an assisted living facility and went shopping in January.

The woman identified by the deputies as middle-aged, medium built with black hair and brown eyes, took three charge cards from a woman's purse at the office of Aston Gardens Assisted Living facility.

She then visited six stores in Tampa including Macy's at the Westfield Citrus Park Mall, The Jewelry Exchange, Nordstrom's, Best Buy and TGI Friday, and spent about $12,000 deputies say.

She was last seen wearing a yellow blazer, red shirt, dark pants and black sandals and driving a blue SUV.

Deputies encourage anybody with the information on her whereabouts to call Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813)247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at crimestopperstb.com or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637) to be eligible for a cash reward.
