ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Detectives with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department are asking for the public’s help in locating three people who robbed a Family Dollar store in the Bevo neighborhood two weeks ago.

According to Leah Freeman, a police spokeswoman, the robbery happened just after 3 p.m. on February 4 in the 4600 block of Gravois Avenue.

Three suspects—two men and a woman—walked into the store and began taking merchandise of the shelves and placing them inside trash cans. After filling the trash cans, the woman walked outside the store. The two men approached the register with the trash cans, but ran outside without paying for anything.

A store employee chased after them, but one of the men shoved the employee and the suspects got away.
