Nassau police and their Crime Stoppers department are looking for two women wanted for suspicion of stealing from local supermarkets.
According to police, on April 23 one suspect cashed two fraudulent Coinstar receipts at a King Kullen supermarket on Peninsula Boulevard in Hewlett. Another woman is suspected of cashing more fake Coinstar receipts at King Kullen on New Hyde Park Road in Franklin Square.
Coinstar is a machine found in supermarkets in which patrons can deposit large amounts of coins for paper currency, for a service fee.
Police say that sometime between May 30 and June 1, 14 titanium forgings, valued at between $3,000 and $9,000 each, were taken from Air Industries on Fifth Avenue.
The items are brushed aluminum in color and weigh between 170 and 507 pounds each, according to police. Serial numbers are engraved on each piece. Police say they are especially interested in talking with companies that deal with scrap metal, if they have information.
