Hillsborough County deputies are seeking the public’s help in locating a pregnant woman suspected of shoplifting at two Target stores in the Carrollwood area on two consecutive days.

Deputies say the woman is seen in surveillance photos entering the store at 6925 W. Waters Ave. on July 24 around 12:25 p.m. She removed two Apple watches, valued at $300, from a display and hid them in her handbag before leaving the store without paying.

Then, on July 25 around 12:50 p.m., deputies say she entered the store at 15240 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. and took a Graco sling baby carrier valued at $160, before leaving in a 1997-98 silver Acura with a temporary tag.

She is described as an Hispanic female between 25 and 35 years old. She is 5 feet 4, with long brown hair, brown eyes, pregnant, and was last seen wearing a pink tank top and tan shorts.
