In the description of the suspects, it sounds like they were dressed for success. One of the ladies was wearing leather pants and another was rocking a short skirt. The overall appearance of them wasn't like your ordinary average thief. Maybe, they had dates after the robbery and that was what the meat and liquor were for.
