LISBON — Police say they are looking for a woman wanted in connection with a series of car break-ins that occurred while the owners were attending a youth football match at a nearby pitch.

Connecticut State Police E Troop in Montville said they were notified around 4 p.m. Oct. 31 about the incidents at Lisbon Meadows.

During the investigation, soldiers discovered that the windows of four vehicles had been smashed and that several purses and wallets had been stolen while families were at the game on the nearby field, police said.

Police said attempts were then made to cash forged checks that were stolen from the cars.

Police said they obtained video footage from the bank showing a woman trying to cash the checks while driving a new model white Subaru Crosstrek. The vehicle had Connecticut license plates, which have since been reported stolen, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call E Troop at 860-848-6500 ext 5021.
