KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -  Tri-Cities police officers are looking for two people who are stealing hundreds of dollars in razors from local drug stores.

Police say the man and woman seen in surveillance images have been at it since March, and their plan of attack appears methodical.

The man and woman enter the drug store, go straight to the men's razors with their backs to the surveillance cameras, take dozens of shavers off the shelf, and then take off.

Each time the woman has a large bag over her shoulder, and each time the duo arrives and depart in a different car.

"Each time they go the store, they are in a different car so they may either be in a rental car or maybe a borrowed car," said Detective Mike Anderson, Bristol Tennessee Police.   "They're going in.  They know where they need to go.  They go right to that location, and then they leave the store."

Investigators say the razor robbers have hit two Walgreens stores in Bristol and one in Johnson City over the past four months.

 Estimated value of the stolen items?   More than $800.

Police are checking flea markets to see if anyone has been selling the razors.

If you recognize the people in these surveillance videos, call Bristol, Tennessee Police Detective Mike Anderson at 423-989-5529,
