LA Police search for women dubbed the "Baby Stroller Bandits"
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Los Angeles Police are searching for one of two women dubbed the "baby stroller bandits" for allegedly stealing wallets from shopping mothers. Officers arrested 55-year-old Bertha Vargas Friday. Now they're trying to find 51-year-old Norma Reyes.
The women are accused of committing several thefts in the city's Fashion District by distracting mothers and stealing their wallets from purses left in baby strollers.
Authorities have released this surveillance video, which they say shows the two women stealing a wallet from a stroller at a downtown LA swap meet earlier this month.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
