Thieves driving a late-model Mercedes sped off with a haul of beer from Delta Express on Brainerd Road, police said.

Three black males were seen exiting the Mercedes with very dark-tinted windows after it was parked in a far corner of the parking lot. They were also spotted putting on some clothing from the vehicle.

The trio rushed into the store and grabbed four 12 packs of Bud Lite and a 12-pack of Budweiser, then jumped into the waiting car. A police officer en route to the scene spotted the car and tried to catch it, but it got away.

One man was described as in his late 30s, 5'3" with two gold front teeth and a tattoo on his neck. He was wearing a toboggan and a black hoodie. A clerk said she saw that same man in the store earlier in the day and said he was "acting funny."

Two other suspects were in their late teens to early 20s and about six feet tall. One was wearing a black hoodie. Another was wearing a blue plaid shirt and a black ball cap.

A loss control specialist at Target on Highway 153 said he spotted Terella Crutcher select $201.23 in clothing items and try to leave without paying.

Ms. Crutcher, 25, of 610 Spears Ave., was taken to jail since she had a prior warrant on her for theft under $500.

She has an extensive criminal record, including assaults, traffic infractions and drugs.

The proprietor of Royal Treatment Spa and Salon on Lee Highway was highly displeased with a shipment she received from Hong Kong.

She told an officer that it all was inferior quality.

A bath tub had cracks and the paint did not match. Rusty old brackets were used on the massage chairs. The food trays were broken and scratched.
