Newark Public Safety Fritz G. Fragé requests the public’s help in identifying the  suspect in connection with a theft that occurred on Friday, September 9.


According to Newark Police, at approximately 5 a.m., a worker at LA Fitness, located at 237 South Orange Avenue, placed a book bag inside a cleaning closet and went to another area of the gym.  

When she returned shortly thereafter, her bag was opened and her cell phone, identification card, and bank card were stolen.


Newark officials say the bank card was used at a nearby store and at a gas station.


Detectives investigating this incident seek the public’s help in identifying the suspect, who was captured on a surveillance camera inside LA Fitness.

She is described as a slim, Hispanic female wearing a black jacket with silver zippers, black leggings, black sneakers, and a blue face mask.  

She was also carrying a large blue bag on her shoulder.


Director Fragé urges anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect to call the Police Division's 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477).
