Authorities are trying to identify a woman accused of stealing about $20,000 worth of merchandise from at least seven locations of The Paper Store.

Surveillance video shows her taking Vera Bradley bags and wallets.

One store manager said she'll stuff a backpack full of merchandise and leave the store without paying. She's gone before employees can stop her.

Company officials said they believe the same woman is responsible for stealing merchandise at seven stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and maybe others.

The Massachusetts-based chain is unsure if it can recover the losses.
