Women sought in razor blade heists

The Allen County Sheriff's Department has released photos of two women who are suspects in the theft of almost $2,000 worth of razor blades from two Walgreens stores.

About 3:30 p.m. Feb. 25, two women went to the Walgreens at Chestnut Plaza, placed a number of razor blades into their purses and then left the store, according to a statement issued by the sheriff's department.

Later that day, one of them entered the Walgreens at Time Corners, again taking razor blades without paying, the statement said.

They left in a black four-door car.

The suspects are described as being in their late 20s or early 30s with brown hair. At the time of the thefts, one was wearing blue-green scrubs with a blue and purple flowered shirt. The other was wearing a brown and tan checkered sweatshirt with a yellow undershirt.
