Police are seeking a woman suspected of theft by fraud for reportedly asking for gas money.
The Janesville Police Department said officers are looking to speak with Richelle Borchardt.
According to an advisory Saturday afternoon, police said Borchardt has been arrested in the past for soliciting without a license by asking citizens for money under the pretense that she needed gas. Officers are seeking Borchardt for a recent incident in which she is suspected of committing theft by fraud in the same manner.
Anyone who has contact with Borchardt is asked to contact Janesville police.
The police department said it strongly discourages citizens from handing money to soliciting for gas. If a person questions the legitimacy of a stranger for asking for money, contact police to help the stranded motorist, the department advised.
According to court records, Borchardt is 38 years old and her most recent address is in Janesville.
