Woman wanted for gas station thefts in Pender, Onslow counties

HOLLY RIDGE, NC (WWAY) — Police are trying to identify a woman who is wanted for allegedly stealing from gas stations in Holly Ridge, Richlands, and Burgaw.

The Holly Ridge Police Department responded to a Speedway located on 400 North U.S. 17 in reference to a theft reported on November 9 around 12:03 a.m.

Police say she walked around the store, picked up a Mt. Dew, went to the counter and asked for two cartons of cigarettes. The woman then asked for a single pack of cigarettes.

The clerk left the counter to get the single pack of cigarettes and the female took off with the soda and two cartons of cigarettes.

The vehicle, a white Buick Rendezvous, did not have a license plate and left on US 17 southbound.

The female appears to be 40-50 years of age. She has brown hair and glasses, wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans and black flip flops.

Those crimes happened the same day as the Holly Ridge theft.
