RCMP have released surveillance images of a woman who allegedly used credit cards stolen from Kelowna General Hospital last month.

On Feb. 21, a 35-year-old woman was at the pediatric ward of the hospital when she noticed her wallet had been stolen.

“She reported the incident to police after calling the credit card companies to cancel her cards,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “She was later contacted by one of the credit card companies who advised her that one of her cards had been used at some businesses located in the Orchard Park Mall.”

The card was used 30 minutes after the victim noticed her wallet missing.

Police obtained surveillance video from two of the stores where the stolen card was used that allegedly showed the female suspect in the stores and released still photos of that surveillance Monday in an effort to identify the suspect.

If anyone has any information about the woman’s identity, they’re asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
