Los Angeles County deputies are investigating on Friday after two women were caught on surveillance video robbing a CVS Pharmacy store with a stun gun.

The robbery occurred on Thursday around 8:57 p.m. in the 5500 block of Rosemead Boulevard.

The women entered the store, placed several items in their personal bags and attempted to leave without paying, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department press release.

"They immediately went to specific areas of the store and cleaned out the shelves; by putting their forearms on the shelves and just swiping through and grabbing a bunch of items," said Det. Robert Leyba with the Department.

They stole an estimated $1,000 worth of merchandise, Leyba added.

As the pair were leaving a manager approached the women and one of the suspects produced a stun gun and activated it, the Department said.

The women are shown on camera holding the Taser towards employees before fleeing the scene in a red 4-door vehicle.

A similar incident was reported at a Vons grocery store in the area nearly an hour later, according to the Department.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the Temple Sheriff Station at 626-285-7171.
