Authorities from the Maui Police Department and Crime Stoppers are seeking the public’s help in identifying a person wanted for the alleged theft of a Louis Vuitton purse, valued at $700, from the From Rome to Paris store at the Queen Kaʻahumanu Center in Kahului last month.

The incident was reported at around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, April 18, 2014.

According to officials, an unknown female suspect stole the brown-colored purse, then fled towards the parking lot fronting Koho’s Bar & Grill.


The suspect is described as 5’5” to 5’6” tall, weighing 110 to 120 pounds, in her 30s, with dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, and a tan complexion. Authorities say she was wearing a purple & pink tank top with a white striped skirt and white top slippers.
