A bikini-clad woman allegedly robbed two homes in California earlier this month, and law enforcement officials are still trying to catch her.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday released images of the suspect captured by home surveillance cameras.

According to sheriff's officials, the thief donned a green bikini top and a yellow bikini bottom around 3 p.m. June 4 when she broke into a locked property in the 28000 block of West Avenue C-6 and made off with some unidentified items.

Witnesses say the woman was seen leaving the scene in a tan-colored sedan.

She is described as white, in her late 30s, and approximately 5ft 5in and 120lbs.

"Arson/Explosives (Detail) is on the way to check out the device and safely detonate it", said Shirley Miller, a spokeswoman with the Santa Clarita Sheriff's Station, on Wednesday afternoon.
