Tucson police have arrested a pair in connection with more than 70 thefts and beer skips dating back to October.

Richelle Tewes, 24, and Miguel Gutierrez, 31, were arrested in June in connection with more than $9,000 in thefts and booked into jail on felony charges of aggravated shoplifting, according to a Tucson Police Department news release.

Police began working on the case with Circle K in April. Because the pair worked together during the incident, employees of the stores that they allegedly stole from nicknamed them "Bonnie and Clyde."
