A suspected thief is accused of burglarizing a woman three times while she was working out. 

The woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, said she had put her stuff in a gym locker at the 24 Hour Fitness in Summerlin near Town Center Drive and Summerlin Parkway.

"I got back to my locker and my lock was gone," said the woman. 

Along with her lock, the woman says the burglar took her car key and eventually found her car in the parking lot before driving it to the woman's apartment. 

"She skimmed through my entire apartment pretty quick," the victim said. 

The woman says the thief got away with $2,000 worth of stuff, but then was caught on surveillance video going through her mail. 

"She looked so calm and she didn't even take everything," she said.

13 Action News reached out to 24 Hour Fitness who advises club members to always leave their stuff at home or work. They also advise not to leave belongings unattended, by wearing a fanny pack or arm band.

Police are investigating the string of burglaries. The victim says she is still missing her car keys and worries for her safety.

"It concerns me so much you can not even enjoy daily life," she said.
