SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- (KSWB) -- A woman wearing a bikini who appeared to be seeking relief from the heat is now being sought by authorities.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday that they were looking for a woman who wore a two-piece bathing suit while breaking into a locked property in Lancaster weeks ago. The unidentified woman went into the property in the 28000 block of West Avenue C-6 on June 4.

She then entered an unlocked home on Three Points Road in Lake Hughes hours later, Los Angeles Times reported.

In both cases, the woman stole belongings, deputies said.

Surveillance pictures of the “bikini bandit” show her wearing a green top and yellow bottoms. She is believed to be in her 30s, 5 feet, 5 inches tall with long brown hair.

Anyone who has seen the woman is asked to call the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 661-255-1121, ext. 51565.
