2/8/2016 - Shoplifting, Wal Mart, Winter Haven

Winter Haven Police are trying to identify three subjects who attempted to take more than $1,400 worth of items, including electronics, from WalMart.
On 2-2-16 around noon, the three men walked into WalMart (355 Cypress Gardens Blvd.) and began selecting numerous high-dollar items. They worked together selecting kitchen appliances and a television. 
One left the store separate from the other two. The two pushing the buggies were approached by associates asking for proof of purchase. They both ran leaving the carts outside. They were seen leaving in a light brown Chevrolet Blazer. 
Contrary to popular belief, it is still against the law and considered stealing even if you leave the unpaid merchandise outside of the store. When you intend to deprive a merchant from their merchandise without paying, it`s against the law. 
Anyone who recognizes either of these three suspects is asked to contact Detective Charles Blanton at 863-401-2256. Callers can also call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a CASH reward.
