Help Us Identify These "Pink" Thieves

On October 11th, 2014, the Overland Park Police Department took an auto burglary report at a local country club. The two victims told police they parked their minivan in the parking lot of the establishment and left two purses inside. When they returned, they discovered someone had broken out one of the windows and removed the purses from inside. The victims had several credit cards stolen along with some personal checks.

A short time later, the female suspect uses one of the victim's checks at an area retail store. The same female returns to the store two hours later and makes a second fraudulent purchase with another check belonging to the victim. She is accompanied by a male who also engages in a theft while he's inside the store.

Still not done, the female then goes to a different store in another city and uses a third check belonging to the victim to purchase a pink bed comforter (see picture below).

The victim's checks continue to be passed at various businesses in the Johnson County, Kansas area.

The suspect is described as a thin white female, with bleach blonde hair, and appears to be in her 20`s or 30`s. She is accompanied by a stocky white male, with short, shaved hair and a thin beard. He also appears to be in his late 20`s or early 30`s and has unknown tattoos on the insides of both forearms.

They are both seen leaving in a large, dark-colored SUV.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park Police at 913-344-8729.
