DENVER — Denver police are searching for a woman accused of stealing money from a liquor store in Denver’s Windsor neighborhood.

The manager of Alameda Liquor Mart at East Alameda Avenue and South Dayton Street says he was suspicious from the start when a women came into the store with two young children.

“She walks in with a kid and basically scouts everything that’s going on in the store” the liquor store manager said.

Surveillance video obtained by FOX31 shows the woman behind the counter, getting into the money box. Another video shows the woman rummaging through an office in the store with a child.

The manager says the woman got away with more than $2,000.

The manager of Express Mini Market, in the same strip mall as Alameda Liquor Mart, says the woman came in with two young children and used them to get away with several items from the store.

“She grabbed some lotion and some body wash. She left really fast. And in between, I tried to ask her, ‘Do you need help with something?’ But she said she was OK and she didn’t need help. And I followed her and she went to the liquor store,” said the manager of Express Mini Market.

Denver Metro Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,000 for any information that leads to an arrest. Anonymous tips can also be made to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers: 720-913-7867.
