See the suspect's description and the Facebook post below:

The post humorously kicks off by stating, "#CommunityCrimeFighters do you recognize this person? No, it's not Goldilocks. That is actually a long blond wig." The accompanying images reveal a person wearing a blond wig while pushing a shopping cart in a department store.

According to the Nampa Police Department, the suspect allegedly stole a shopper's purse, and the stolen item can be seen circled in the last photo shared in the post.

Authorities are now turning to the public for help in identifying the individual or anyone who might recognize someone with a similar distinct wig.
