Ponoka RCMP are looking for suspects involved in two different liquor theft incidents at Sobeys Liquor.
The first occurred on March 10, say police, when a woman entered the building and allegedly stole a bottle of Alberta Premium Rye Whiskey. She entered the store with two other people and is said to have put the bottle in her purse and left in a dark coloured Pontiac van. It is described as having tape on the passenger side hood.
The second theft occurred on March 12 just before 11 p.m.
A man, believed to have been part of the same group on March 10, entered the store with a woman. Ponoka RCMP allege that the pair stole two bottles of Smirnoff vodka.
It is believed the modus operandi of the pair is to keep cashiers distracted by attempting to pay for liquor with a debit card that gets declined while another person, in this case the woman, takes the liquor.
