Crime Stoppers: Shoplifters At Brainerd Walmart

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of some shoplifters at the Brainerd Walmart.

A man and woman were observed by store security concealing over $1,000 dollars in BluRay movies in their backpack, purse, and under their clothes, then leaving the store without paying. When confronted by store security outside, the male shoplifter pulled out a large hunting knife and began wildly swinging it at the unarmed loss prevention employees, who wisely backed off.  The couple then ran to their vehicle and left in their vehicle.  There was no tag visible, but the truck was an older model green Ford Ranger with silver detailing on the rear tailgate.

The suspects are a white male in his 30s with brown hair and a bit of grey in it, a goatee, medium build, 5’10”, 170 pounds, and wearing a black leather jacket, green T-shirt and and grey ball cap at the time.  The other suspect was a woman, approximately 25 to 35 years of age with long red hair, a slim build, 5’7” and 130 pounds, and was wearing a black pea coat. Charges will include felony theft and aggravated assault.

Officials said, "While the pictures and video were taken from a distance, we believe someone out there may recognize this couple and/or their vehicle, especially coupled with the amount of BlueRay videos they’d be trying to move."

Anyone with information on the identity of this man and woman, should call Crime Stoppers. A confidential call could result in a cash reward.
