Police asked for the public’s help in early March to identify two women who had entered the store empty handed, but left with 30 pairs of jeans. While one of the pair caught on camera is still on the loose, an investigation revealed a third woman allegedly involved in the scheme.

Investigators have identified Tyleesia Kitchen, 28, as one of the women in surveillance footage. The other woman arrested is Martina Raquel Lyons, 22, though her role is less clear. Both women are residents of Philadelphia.

Newtown Police are still looking for the third woman and are asking for the public’s help to identify her. Anyone with information should immediately contact authorities or submit a tip on Crimewatch.

The robbery on Mar. 1 mirrors an incident at a GAP in Doylestown on the same day. Officials say these culprits are responsible for both cases.
