D.C. Police are on the lookout for a group of women who may had the munchies so bad they allegedly stole about $150 in snacks from a 7-Eleven convenience store in Dupont.

A dozen women filed into the 7-Eleven at 1645 Connecticut Ave. NW just before 2 a.m. on Aug. 12, according to a police report. Once inside, some of the women grabbed chips, drinks and other snacks before bolting from the shop without paying. Though one of the store’s cashiers tried to stop them, the women ran away with roughly $150 worth of snacks and drinks, authorities said.

A new police video appears to show the moment the mass theft occurred. In the video, a group of happy, smiling women can be seen walking into the convenience store. Several of the women appear to stare directly into the camera as they walk past; one woman even seems to fix her hair while gazing into the camera. Then, seemingly without warning, the women make a break for it.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the women in the video to contact them by calling 202-727-9099 or texting tips to 50411.
