Ryder, beware of...

Four women in a white suburban that look like they've been eating a lot of McDonald's.

Women sought in Sixth Street abductions

Police say they are looking for four women suspected of abducting men on Sixth Street, stealing their credit or debit cards and running up the bills on those cards by buying as much as $3,000 worth of gift cards and other items at stores such as Wal-Mart, McDonald's and Walgreens.

Police have not released detailed descriptions or photographs of the suspects, or the victims' names.

Austin Police Department Sgt. Justin Newsom said that the women's three victims reported they were picked up in a white Suburban and awoke later with little memory of what else had occurred.

He said that one man said he was robbed Sept. 20 and the other two men on Oct. 18.

Newsom said that two of the men woke up in a hotel parking lot. The other was "kicked out of the van" and his wallet was taken, Newsom said. He said that all of the victims reported that they had been drugged, but that "there is no actual evidence of that."
