Newark police are asking the public’s help in identifying two women who reporting stole about $1,000 worth of merchandise Saturday at an area grocery store.
They released photos from the store’s video surveillance system today.
The incident occurred about 10:20 a.m. at the Pathmark in the College Square Shopping Center, said Newark police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall.
The women reportedly loaded up their shopping car with diapers, body cleansing products and laundry detergent and then walked out of the story without paying for the groceries.
Two Pathmark employees approached the suspects in the parking lot as they were loading the stolen items into their car but they drove off.
The car is described as an older model white Toyota Camry with no license plate and a broken rear passenger side window that had been taped.
The car was last seen driving out of the shopping center toward Marrows Road, Farrall said.
