Edmond Police are looking for a suspected shoplifter who police say spent more than seven hours in an Old Navy store last Monday. 

Police say the woman, who was wearing jeans and a white top and carrying a large red bag, entered the store at 2:36 p.m.

Officers say the woman hid from employees when the Old Navy closed at 9 p.m. that night.

Surveillance photos show the suspected shoplifter walked out of the store just after 9:45 p.m., about 20 minutes after the last Old Navy employee left.

When she left, police say she tripped the burglar alarm.

"This is exactly why you have surveillance," said Edmond Police Spokesperson Jenny Monroe. "We get a pretty good look at her as she's walking out."

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the woman to call Edmond Police. They want to talk to her.
