It’s Pretty Bad When People Are Stealing Inside the Criminal Justice Center

This woman is wanted in connection with a theft at the CJC.


The Criminal Justice Center — commonly referred to as the CJC — is that big 17-story building at 13th and Filbert streets where criminal trials are held. And though the CJC is, at any given moment during business hours, filled with ne’er-do-wells, evildoers and miscreants, generally speaking, people behave themselves inside. But last week, someone decided to steal a wallet from a woman at the CJC.

Police say that it happened on Wednesday, May 6th. A woman inside the CJC reported having her wallet stolen right out of her purse. And soon thereafter, according to police, another woman — the one seen in this photo — was captured on surveillance video (see below) at multiple stores on Aramingo Avenue trying to use the stolen credit cards.

The suspect is described by police as follows: “Black female, early to mid twenty years-of-age, heavy build, wearing a head scarf, white t-shirt, blue jeans, and a black sweater.”

If you know who this woman is, first, quickly stash the brand new microwave she gave you in the garage. Then, call Detective Rocks at 215-686-3047 or the police tip line at 215-686-TIPS.
