PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A thief went on a $1,200 shopping spree after swiping a woman's credit card left on the counter at a Phoenix restaurant and bar, police said.

Silent Witness is asking the public for leads in the case.

The theft at Dave & Busters occurred in the bowling alley at around 3:20 p.m. May 8.

The business is located at 21001 N. Tatum Blvd., in the Desert Ridge shopping complex.

At about 5:20 p.m., a woman was seen entering a Target store at the shopping complex.

Police said the suspect shopped for more than one hour and made purchases totaling $1,200 in merchandise.   

The suspect then got gas at the SuperPumper at 8646 E. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. in Scottsdale.

Officers said the suspect is described as in her 20s or early 30s. She was last seen wearing a gray top, ripped blue jeans and carrying a large pink purse with hearts on it.

People with any information are asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department's Homicide Unit at 602-262-6141. People can also call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO.

    Tucson city leaders will debate a ban on so called "bump stocks" at its next council meeting on October 24, 2017. While the text of the agenda item # 10 explicitly calls the item a ban, it's unlikely the city will be able to do so.

    “While this appears to be a crime of opportunity, it’s still poaching and theft of wildlife from the citizens of Arizona,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson, in a recent news release.  “It’s especially cruel, given that the javelina was pregnant.”
