Police ask for help identifying suspected liquor thieves

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Four young women and one young man escaped a Safeway - but not its surveillance cameras – on Monday night, the Vancouver police said.

Police are asking for help tracking down the group, which they said used a Taser to escape after stealing liquor from the store on Mill Plain and Andersen in Vancouver.

After being confronted by store employees, one of the women pulled out the Taser and the group ran to a car waiting in the parking lot, police said.

They also said the video shows some members of the group were clearly more active in the robbery than others, and suggested that the less-active suspects contact Vancouver Police.

Though the robbery happened in Vancouver, police believe the suspects are from Portland.
