On Oct.  7  between 2:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., the yet-to-be identified suspect gained access to the Bret Harte Elementary School Campus, 3200 Jeffries Ave., Burbank. Once on campus, the suspect walked into an unoccupied classroom. She stole a credit card and money from a teacher’s purse. The suspect later used the credit card to make purchases at stores in Glendale and Burbank.

The suspect is not a parent of a child who attends Bret Harte, nor did she have any legitimate reason to be on the school campus.

The suspect in this case is also considered a person of interest in similar crimes in La Crescenta and El Segundo.

The Burbank Police Dept. is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect and her vehicle. We are working with the Burbank Unified School District, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. and the El Segundo Police Dept. on this case. Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Burbank Police Detective Steve Karagiosian at (818) 238-3210 or

The suspect is described as being a female African-American, 30 to 40 years old, wearing a white tank top. Her vehicle is described as being a black Kia or Hyundai 4 door with out of state license plates.

    Same thing happened at our school in North Hollywood in August and last May. Surveillance video showed an AfricanAmerican woman in her 40′s. Wonder if it’s the same person. Exact time frame too.
