NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Three women were arrested in Northwest Miami-Dade after being suspected of a series of beauty supply thefts.

The arrests took place at a 7-11 gas station on Northwest 52nd Street and 32nd Avenue, Wednesday evening.

Police with guns in hand got the attention of the women as they came out of the car, and were greeted with handcuffs.

Officers from several different units were told Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies in Fort Lauderdale were in on this, some wearing masks and others in plain clothes.

The women were followed by police from Broward County to Miami-Dade County.

According to Fort Lauderdale Police, the women are behind a string of Broward County beauty supply thefts in places like Dania Beach and Fort Lauderdale.

Investigative techniques were used in order to track them.

Just before they were arrested, they went through a McDonald’s drive-thru in Miami.

7News spoke to one of the detainees and she said, “Yeah. What happened? And I’m a single momma, [explitive]. What happened? It’s holiday time.”

She also added, “and I went to Georgia too.”

They were apprehended in Miami-Dade and have since been charged with grand theft in Davie.

Three different Broward County police agencies are looking into the incidences that went across Broward.
