Two men and a woman entered the ABC Fine Wine & Spirits at Trailwinds Village off County Road 466A this past Friday at about 2:30 p.m. A short time later, they exited the store without paying for liquor valued at about $650, a police report states.

  • Suspect #3: Black female was described as being large, middle aged with gold/blonde hair. She was wearing a gold necklace, gray hat, printed shirt, red leggings and black Fila slides.

The three thieves possibly left in the store in a silver or gray SUV, similar to a Jeep Compass.
