CCSO Seeks Public's Help In Grand Theft Case

Collier County sheriff’s deputies are looking for the public’s help in finding a woman wanted for questioning in connection with the theft of high-end goods from a North Naples residence earlier this month.

Deputies are investigating the theft, which was reported March 17. The stolen items include Cartier and Ebel watches, Louis Vuitton luggage and jewelry, along with U.S. and British currency.

The homeowner told deputies he met the woman at a restaurant on Fifth Avenue South in Naples. She said her name was “Trish” and that she was visiting the Naples area from Los Angeles.

Deputies said the woman is described as Asian, possibly Filipino or Polynesian, 5 feet to 5 feet 4 inches tall, and around 110 to 130 pounds.

She has straight brown hair below her shoulders, dark eyes and a tattoo of a chain or rosary around one of her ankles.

She was well dressed and wore high-end accessories including a Rolex watch and carried a large Louis Vuitton handbag.

Anyone who has had contact with the woman or information related to the theft is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS. You can remain anonymous.
