CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -
Chesterfield Police are searching for three suspects connected with two separate thefts at Target less than 48 hours apart.
On Tuesday afternoon, police asked the public for help in identifying two women they say stole several items from a Target store in Chesterfield. The following day, the department asked the public to identify another suspect, this time a lone male.
In both cases, the suspects allegedly stole a Dyson vacuum cleaner. The male suspect also stole fragrances from the Target store, police said in their Facebook post.
"So, if you know a person that looks like this subject, smells good, and has a well-vacuumed residence, please call us," their Facebook post read on Wednesday.
Police did not say if the robberies were linked or if the suspects were all connected.
Since posting their initial post about identifying the female suspects, Chesterfield Police said they have since begun the process of locating the women. At this time, they have not been located or identified publicly by police, yet.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the female suspects, or the identification of the male suspect, should contact Chesterfield Police at 636-537-3000.
