Police need your help to find two women, they say, shoplifted 15 cases of beer and other items from Walmart and pepper sprayed two employees and a customer.

It happened Wednesday morning at the Walmart on West Floyd Baker Boulevard in Gaffney.

Investigators say the women left the scene in a burgundy Mercedes. 

Gaffney police are working with Greenville County Sheriff's deputies to see if there is a connection in this case to another crime two weeks ago.

In that case, deputies say two women shoplifted from Walmart and as they left they sprayed pepper spray at a worker.

If you can help identify the two women or have any information about this case, please call the Gaffney Police Department at 864.489.8115.
