The Utica Police Department and Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers are teaming up to attempt to identify a woman who is accused of stealing multiple containers of laundry detergent.
According to police, back on May 8th the woman pictured above entered the Price Chopper on Auert Ave. in North Utica. It is reported that she got away with 11 units of Tide Laundry Detergent. Approximately 4 hours later the same woman entered the Price Chopper on Genesee Street and stole 10 units and other grocery items.
In a twist to the story, the same suspect was seen at the Auert Ave. location in the early morning of May 10th, 2017 and got away with 21 units of Tide Detergent. The only information known about the woman is the above photos and the fact that she was seen leaving the South Utica store in a black Volkswagen Passat.
