Police are looking for trio who allegedly stole 16 bottles of Ciroc vodka from a Vons store in Glendale.
Officials released surveillance video footage on Friday that showed a man grabbing bottles of vodka off the shelves inside the Vons in the 2000 block of Verdugo Boulevard at 9:40 p.m. on Aug. 5. He quickly removed security caps from the bottles.
Surveillance video shows the man handing the bottles to two females, who concealed them in large handbags.
Police estimated the cost of the theft at $560.
The man was described as black, in his 20s, 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall, 165 to 175 pounds, with cropped hair. He wore jeans and a hooded long-sleeve T-shirt and a black paracord bracelet on his right wrist, according to the Glendale News-Press.
The girls were described as black, in their late teens to mid-20s, 5 feet 5 to 5 feet 7.
One of the girls weighs 140 to 160 pounds, had long, braided hair, carried a black purse and wore multicolored pants.
The second girl weighs 125 to 135 pounds, had her hair in a ponytail, carried a black bag and wore torn jeans and large gold earrings.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call Det. Travis Goodreau at (818) 548-2097.
