The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Theft Crimes Bureau is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects involved in an on-going investigation of burglary and obtaining money under false pretenses at local convenience stores in the Las Vegas valley.
 
The investigation indicates that an unknown male will call the victim convenience stores and identify himself as a corporate supervisor conducting an audit of the store finances.
 
The male will then direct an employee to retrieve cash from the safe and/or register and begin counting the money while on the phone.
 
The employee is often told that they will lose their job if the task is not completed.
 
After completing the countdown, the male advises the employee that a female will enter the store, take the money from the employee and conduct a separate audit outside the store.
 
Two separate females entered the various stores and took the money from the employee. The money was never returned and each store’s corporate office later confirmed that no audit was ever planned or completed.
 
The first suspect is described as a white female adult, approximately 20 to 30 years of age and standing between 5’6” and 6’ tall, having a heavy build and brown hair.
 
The second suspect is described as a white female adult, approximately 20 to 30 years of age and standing between 5’ and 5’4” tall, having a thin build and sandy brown or reddish hair.
 
Anyone with knowledge as to the identity or whereabouts of these suspects is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
