ST. PETERS, MO (KPLR)-St. Peters Police Department are looking for three women who stole shopping carts full of toys from a Toys R Us.

On Saturday, November 28, just before 3:00pm, three black females pushed three shopping carts full of items out of the store on Suemandy Drive. The suspects made no attempt to pay for the items and headed straight to their car, a silver Nissan.

As they were loading up their vehicle, a customer who witnessed the theft was able to grab one cart. As he was trying to return it to the store, the women were grabbing at the items. The thieves then loaded the rest of the stolen items into the car and fled the scene before police arrived.

Another customer took photos of the three suspects, as well as the vehicle and license plate, Illinois Y92 5157.

It is believed suspects stole $1500 – $2000 worth of toys.
