Adams County authorities are searching for a suspect who stole a law enforcement officer's purse Sunday morning that held a firearm and her badge.

The county sheriff's office

said the purse was stolen at the Tomahawk Truck Stop in Strasburg as the officer was pumping gas.

Investigators say the officer was off-duty.

Authorities released a surveillance image of the woman Monday evening, saying she fled the area in a silver or light gray sedan with a partial Florida plate starting with the letters GBI.

Deputies say the woman also stole another purse in about a 30-minute span.

Anyone with information on the case or who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the sheriff's office at 720-322-1313 or 911.
