The woman seen in security camera photos released Dec. 1 is allegedly Alexis Edwards, 22, of Boise, authorities said Wednesday.
Boise police have been investigating a case where an Idaho Humane Society employee had debit cards stolen twice from her purse while it sat in a back room for employee personal items.
Crime Stoppers of Southwest Idaho released one photo of the suspect Nov. 17 after the first theft. After that, police said, the IHS employee had another debit card stolen from the same place.
So early this month, police released security camera photos of a woman seen entering the IHS back room Oct. 28, at the time of the first theft. Some of the photos are clearly from a retail outlet, and police say the card was used multiple times at several stores.
