Photos Capture Thieves In Action In Grand Junction Liquor Store Theft
The Grand Junction Police Department is trying to identify four individuals involved in a recent theft at a local liquor store.
Two Keys to Successful Shoplifting
Apparently, the key to a successful shoplifting caper is wearing a mask - and some baggy pants. In the video, you can see four individuals working together to pull off the liquor heist along with the guy who takes an item off the shelf and shoves it down his pants.
A Big Bag Purse Is A Big Plus
Another key component to successful shoplifting is carrying a large purse with easy access. This technique is perfectly demonstrated by this female suspect in the video - quickly grabbing an item off the shelf and slipping it discreetly into the bag.
Surveillance Footage Is Crystal Clear
So many times surveillance footage is blurry and grainy, but in this case, the images are crystal clear - which should make the identification of the suspects more probable even though three of them were wearing masks. Three of the four individuals wore masks, One female suspect allowed her mask to drop off, leaving her face fully visible for all the world to see.
Can You Help Identify These Suspects?
The theft occurred on July 21st at about 10:15 p.m. at Horizon Liquor in Grand Junction.
