FOLSOM, Calif. - Two California women were arrested after trying to steal bags of lingerie, police say.
Police say Blanca Quintero, 22, of Richmond, and Antanae Welch, 19, of Pittsburgh, ran off with "several large bags" of clothing worth $11,000.
Police say when an employee at the store saw the suspects take off with the bra bags she tried to stop them.
That’s when investigators say Quintero tried to pepper spray that employee, but the spray didn't work.
As the two women were about to get away, they were caught by officers.
Along with theft and conspiracy, the women face several other charges. Police say Quintero is also charged with using tear gas to commit a crime. Welch is also facing a charge of possession of counterfeit money. Police said they found a fake $100 bill during their investigation.
