All three thefts occurred on the same day, November 16, 2014, within hours of each other, and occurred in Fruita, Grand Junction and Glenwood Springs.
In each case the group walks into the restaurant and ask the front desk employee about accommodating a large group of approximately 14-15 people for a birthday meal. While the employees are attempting to accommodate the group, one or two of the suspects go into the restaurant office area and take wallets, cash and credit cards belonging to employees and the restaurants. In the surveillance video of the Grand Junction theft a woman can also be seen going through items behind the front counter. Once the theft is completed, they quickly leave the restaurant as a group.
