CENTEREACH, N.Y. (AP) - December 17, 2008

A tiara-wearing New Yorker may miss the royal treatment she desires if she ends up behind bars for credit card theft.

Crime Stoppers and Suffolk County police are asking for the public's help in identifying the woman, who stole a purse at a bar in Centerreach, Long Island on Halloween.

The woman wore the tiara as an accessory to a formal dress. Her companion, a man, wore a dress shirt and tie.

The stolen credit cards were used at gas stations and a convenience store.
