Minnesota women use mace on store security during Black Friday shoplifting incident, police say

Two women in Minnesota are wanted for aggravated burglary after they were caught on video surveillance macing a store employee while running off with baskets full of unpaid items on Black Friday.

The suspects can be seen attempting to leave the store with two red baskets full of items when a loss prevention officer runs over and grabs on to the carts. While he manages to take hold of the items, one of the suspects uses what police believe was mace on the officer.

The women leave the store empty-handed but returned seconds later to recover the merchandise they initially tried to make off with.
