Phoenix-area police looking for group of robbery suspects

PHOENIX -- Several police agencies in the Valley are looking for a group of women they believe is responsible for robbing small retail businesses in Chandler, Tempe and Scottsdale over the past nine months.

The women travel in groups of three to five. Scottsdale police officer Dave Pubins said one of them who looks to be pregnant asks to use the restroom in the back of the store.

"And when that happens, one of the ladies, going with the pregnant person, will go through the employees' purses and take wallets, cash and credit cards," Pubins said.

Then they head to a bigger store where they use the stolen money to purchase baby items and gift cards.

The women haven't been violent.

Anyone with any information on the crimes or suspects can call Scottsdale police at 480-312-5000.

Police have posted surveillance pictures of the women.
