Vancouver police are trying to identify a woman they believe may be connected to thefts from two local summer festivals.

The woman volunteered with the Vancouver Pride Festival, where $9,000 was stolen, and TaiwanFest, where $3,000 disappeared from volunteers.

Sgt. Randy Fincham says in both cases, the woman would have had access to the funds.

"Follow-up with both festivals has determined that the volunteer had provided false information about her name and all efforts to identify the woman, who is considered a person of interest at this point, have been exhausted," he said.

"The Vancouver police now need the public's help to identify the woman."

She is described as a white woman in her late 30s, about five feet four inches tall with a heavy build and dark, shoulder-length hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department.
