ORANGE PARK, Fla. -

The Clay County Sheriff's Office is looking for a woman accused of stealing jewelry from a Target store Thursday.

It happened at the Target at 1490 County Road 220.

According to authorities, a Target loss prevention officer told deputies store security video showed a woman enter the store at 12:29 p.m.

Deputies said the woman can be seen removing a large amount of silver necklaces from a spinning display rack and then concealing them in her purse.

An inventory check revealed a total of 20 necklaces missing from the store, worth $504.80, deputies said.

Authorities said the loss prevention employee told deputies copies of video from the Wells Road, Oakleaf and Ortega Target stores show the same woman stealing merchandise and leaving the store.

Deputies described the woman as in her early 20s with a slim build, brown hair and wearing a black shirt and skirt with dark boots. Deputies said she was seen carrying two purses, one of which is large and gray with a black lower bottom portion. The store said she carried that bag when she was in the other Target stores as well, deputies said.

She left the store's parking lot in a silver four-door car that had a missing hubcap on the front, deputies said.

Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to contact the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
