RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reno police say they're investigating a spate
of grab-and-run thefts from northern Nevada retail stores that lead
to products being sold on the Internet.

Authorities say stores have lost thousands of dollars in
merchandise over the past two months.

Police say suspects typically fill a cart or basket with
electronics and other items before running out of the store to a
getaway vehicle.

Police are using surveillance footage to identify a man
described as a 6-foot-tall in his 30s of Pacific Islander descent.

Officials say he weighs about 300 pounds, has shoulder-length
hair in a ponytail and multiple tattoos.

Two women in their 30s have been identified as suspects, but
officials didn't release their names or descriptions.
