Two money swiping bandits are wanted out of Glenville, and police are hopeful you can break their crime spree. According to Glenville police, a man and a woman are working as a team to distract employees at the check out counter only to rob them.

The first one happened at the Mountaineer Mart in Glenville. Police said the man bought a $3 lottery ticket and paid with a $50 bill. But he allegedly told the employee he gave her a $5 bill. Officers said he continued to confuse the cashier, then allegedly swiped $100 from the counter.

But it didn't end there. The pair allegedly went to Foodland and continued the scam - claiming they paid for several items with a smaller bill than what they did. Police said the woman in this spree even distracted the employee by asking how much something was, and that's when the man swiped cash from the counter. Police think this also happened in Braxton County.

If you know anything about these suspects, call Glenville Police at 304-462-7411.
