SILVER SPRING, Md.: Investigators need help identifying two thieves who stole a Toyota Corolla outside Planet Fitness in downtown Silver Spring.

According to the Montgomery County Police investigation, the female suspects took the victim's car keys from inside the locker room on Wednesday, April 10.

When the women found the car parked near Wayne Street, investigators said they jumped out and drove off, stopping at a nearby store where they used the victim's credit card to make purchases.

Both suspects were captured on surveillance video inside Planet Fitness. Investigators released the footage, hoping that the public would come forward and identify it.

"For someone to take the time to come in and take your stuff like that when it's so valuable to you, it's shocking," said gym member Kevin Gabriel, who added that he always makes sure to use a lock on his belongings.

Planet Fitness sent FOX 5 the following statement:

"The local franchise group is working closely with police in their investigation into a recent theft outside our Silver Springs location. We take this matter very seriously and are committed to providing our members and employees with a safe environment. As this is an ongoing investigation, we refer any additional inquiries to the authorities."

The stolen vehicle is a 2015 Toyota Corolla with a Maryland license plate reading 4DZ5597. Anyone with information regarding these suspects or this crime is urged to contact the Montgomery County Police Department. Remember, tips containing information leading to an arrest may be eligible for a substantial reward ranging from $250 to $10,000.
