Police are searching for a female suspect after a 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit was stolen from a home in the 2000 block of Poel Place in Port Coquitlam.

"She broke into the garage and somehow managed to get into the car," said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. "She then used the garage door opener and off she went."

The vehicle was found unoccupied the next day in Vancouver with two different unmatched license plates that investigators believe were stolen from the 500 block of Blue Mountain Street in Coquitlam.

At the time the vehicle was stolen it contained a new Lexmark laster printer, CDs and a black camera bag. None of the items were recovered after the Vancouver Police Department found the vehicle.

The suspect is described as a white female in her 30s and was seen on a surveillance camera in the area.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-18232. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or go to
