Female thieves nab cash from Paso Robles store
November 6, 2013
Four women teamed up to steal cash from a Paso Robles clothing store Tuesday afternoon.
Around 1:05 p.m. Tuesday, four adult Hispanic women approached the front doors of El Korita Western Wear in the 1400 block of Creston Road. Two of the women entered the store and two waited outside.
One of the two women inside the store distracted the clerk, while the other grabbed cash lying unsecured near the front counter.
The two women left the business, joined the two outside and all four fled in a vehicle. Witnesses last saw the vehicle, reported to be a full size, dark colored SUV, driving northbound on Creston Road.
Paso Robles police officers did not succeed in locating the vehicle. A California Highway Patrol helicopter assisted in the search, but did not locate the suspects’ vehicle.
The two suspects who entered the store are described as being between 50 and 60 years old. The two women waiting outside are described as being in their 20s.
A Hispanic male adult was seen driving the getaway car.
