A woman made off with wallets, purses, keys and a car from a west side health club on Tuesday afternoon, according to Madison police.

The woman said she needed to use the bathroom and instead rifled at least three lockers at Planet Fitness at 7475 Mineral Point Road as the victims were working out, police said.

The woman took the keys to a 29-year-old woman’s car, which was taken from the scene.

The woman is described as black, 5 feet 7 inches tall with a slender build, crooked teeth and waist-length hair. She was wearing a jean jacket and jeans.
