There are people who like to stock up on groceries, so a full cart isn't unusual to see. What is unusual - and also a crime - is not bothering pay.

Three people walked into the Alberson's store at 2512 Broadway on Tuesday, October 18 at approximately 6:30 p.m. grabbed a cart, filled it full of groceries, walked out, and loaded the items their car without bothering to pay.

The three suspects in this case include:

Crime Stoppers of Mesa County

  • Hispanic female with long black hair estimated to be between 15 and 25 years old and weighing between 115 and 125 pounds.
  • Hispanic female, 20-30 years old with red hair. This suspect is between 5-foot 6-inches and 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighing about 150 to 200 pounds.

The three shoplifters left the store in an older gray sedan. Total loss from the theft is over $1,000. That's one heck of a lot of grocery shoplifting.
