FONTANA, Calif. (KNX) — A group of women entered a market in Fontana and, using a crying baby as distraction, stole $50,000 from right under the cashier’s nose.

Surveillance footage from the Village ranch Market at 15091 Merrill Avenue showed the women pulling up to the shop in a white Dodge minivan at around 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday. A total of seven women entered the store and began exiting one by one, according to the shop owner.

As two of the women distract the cashier with a crying baby, another can be seen crawling on the floor and behind the counter. She digs around behind the counter before pulling what looked to be bank deposit bags full of cash. She put them into a bag and crawled back onto the shop floor.

The shop’s owner, Harbander Sandhu, said the thieves made off with about $50,000 in cash and stimulus checks. She has offered a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the women’s arrests.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Fontana Police Department at  (909) 350-7740.
