Police searching for women involved in stunning robbery
Police are seeking the public’s help locating a pair of apparently thirsty women who pulled off what could have been a shocking robbery.
Surveillance images of the two women were recently posted online by Quincy police in an attempt to locate the women who are allegedly responsible for the incident that took place last month.
The women went to the Rite Aid on Granite Street on Nov. 21, according to police. While there, one of the women shoplifted a bottle of vodka from the store.
An employee of the pharmacy confronted the woman who was concealing the bottle and that’s when she pulled out a stun gun.
“When confronted she pulled out a Taser and threatened it towards the loss prevention officer,” according to police.
The gun was not fired and the woman was able to flee. However, police said they have identified her.
Another woman is accused of assisting the alleged shoplifter during the robbery, but police did not provide details on how the woman helped out.
Police described the second woman who assisted in the robbery as a black woman with a medium build and medium height. She was wearing a white jacket with fur on the collar.
There were no injuries reported from the incident.
