Tipsters ID wallet theft suspects

SANTA CLARITA -- Tipsters have identified two Lancaster women as suspects wanted for stealing wallets from elderly shoppers at two Santa Clarita grocery stores, but the pair is still at large, sheriff's officials said Wednesday.

Numerous callers who saw surveillance camera photographs released by sheriff's investigators identified the two as Mishelle ``Shay'' Burrell, 30, and Aesha Gibson, 25.

Deputies contacted the two by telephone, but now they cannot locate the women, according to a sheriff's news release.

The two are excused of stealing from two women shopping at the Granary Square Ralphs in Valencia and Food 4 Less in Canyon Country.
