Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying suspects wanted in the theft of laptop computers from a local Walmart.
Edmond Police spokeswoman Glynda Chu said the suspects took several laptop computers from Walmart on two separate days wearing the same clothes. They had also attempted to steal an unknown amount of laptops at the Edmond Walmart at 15th Street and Interstate 35, Chu said.
On Jan. 19, a Tuesday, Edmond Police were dispatched to the Walmart at 2200 W. Danforth Road to receive information on a larceny, according to a report filed by Edmond Police Officer Brad Griffin.
Police said two male suspects had shoplifted three laptop computers on two separate occasions, the first at about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 11, a Monday, the second at about 5 a.m. Jan. 12. In store surveillance video, the suspects were seen huddling close to the displayed computers, then concealing the items under the loose-fitting shirts, police said.
In both incidents, the suspects were wearing the same lose-fitting flannel-like attire, police said. They appear to be white males with a stocky build. One suspect appears to have red hair and wears eyeglasses. The second suspect appears to have black or dark brown hair and also wears eyeglasses.
Police said it is likely the suspects used a key to open the locks. The missing laptops are a brown Toshiba Satellite computer equipped with a 13.3-inch monitor and a black and silver “Nickelodeon Edition” Dell Mini Inspiron equipped with a 10.1-inch screen and a gray and black Dell Inspiron equipped with a 14-inch monitor, police said.
Surveillance video also shows the suspects leaving in a Ford F-150 pickup with two-tone paint, police said. The truck is a regular cab model and appears to have a normal bed length. While the video is not clear enough to be certain, the color pattern on the truck appears to be a dark green over tan or gray, police said.
Police said the suspects attempted to steal an unknown quantity of laptops from the 15th Street and I-35 Walmart.
Anyone with information about these suspects is asked to call Edmond Crimestoppers at 359-4466 or 9-1-1. Callers to Crimestoppers may remain anonymous.
