SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metro West Chatham Precinct detectives are seeking the public's help in identifying and locating a woman who started a fire in a Wal-Mart store to create a diversion for theft. 

Officials say on Aug. 20 around noon, an unidentified woman started a fire at the Wal-Mart at 6000 Ogeechee Road to allow herself to leave with a basketful of stolen items. 

The suspect is described as a black female appearing to be in her 30s, about 5 foot 3 inches, 150 pounds, wearing glasses and her hair is short. At the time she was wearing gray sweat pants, a white T-shirt with a picture of a white male on it and was driving an older model Suzuki Vitara, believed to be black over gray, according to Savannah-Chatham Metro.

Anyone with information on the identity of the woman or her location is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
