Police are looking for three people who allegedly stole more than $14,000 in cash and merchandise from a Lancaster County convenience store.

Ephrata police said surveillance video from the store shows the on-duty night shift clerk, 23-year-old Brittany Lee Taylor, and two friends were responsible for the crime.

Taylor and her friends, 25-year-old Anthony Joseph D'uva and 24-year-old Damion Lee Good, have been charged with felony retail theft, theft by unlawful taking and conspiracy, but have not been arrested.

Officers were called to the store in the 500 block of W. Main Street at around 2:30 a.m. Thursday when a customer found the place open but vacant.

Police said Taylor and her friends had fled with $12,590 worth of merchandise including cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, health and beauty products, automotive fluids and food, as well as $1,453 in cash from the registers and safe.

Family and friends of the suspects are known to reside in Ephrata, Manheim, Luzerne County and Beachwood, New Jersey, police said.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call Ephrata police at 717-733-8611.
