Police are searching for a woman accused of stealing a purse from a Susquehanna Township fitness center on Aug. 19.

The victim contacted police after she noticed her purse was stolen from an unlocked locker at the Central Penn Fitness Center on Tuesday.

Police searched Bonnette’s home and found the purse along with numerous items that belonged to the victim. She was not home at the time police executed their search warrant.
