Detectives with the Livingston Police Department cleared several open cases involving vehicle thefts in Livingston and Cleveland after LPD officers arrested two Spring residents who attempted to steal a car from the town's Walmart on April 4.

Paul Daniel Turney, 28, and Shanna Rena Dick, 36, are both still being held in the Polk County Jail. Turney's charges include two unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charges and two attempted UUMV charges, all felonies. Dick was charged with one UUMV charge and two attempted UUMV charges.

Collectively, Turney's bail was set at $20,000, and Dick's bail was set at $15,000.

According to a press release, Livingston Police officers responded to the Walmart store located at 1620 West Church Street in reference to a possible car theft being in progress. The suspects were identified as a man dressed in white clothing and a woman. The woman, who was later identified as Dick, was found near the Walmart parking lot.

The witnesses who followed the two suspects said the male suspect, who was later identified as Turney, fled the area. He was found hiding in a wooded area a short time later. After further investigation, Turney and Dick were identified as suspects in two other car thefts and linked to another one in Cleveland.

The press release stated that the first theft occurred at the Livingston Walmart on March 22. During the investigation, LPD officers viewed security camera footage and saw a man dressed all in black attempting entry from several vehicles before he stole a 2004 Dodge pickup.

According to the press release, the second car theft occurred on March 29, and it was at the same location. A Dodge minivan was stolen in this incident. Witnesses said they saw a vehicle drop the male and female suspects off in the Walmart parking lot.

"The following day the minivan was recovered in Cleveland, Texas, and the suspects stole

Another Dodge truck after leaving the van," the press release stated. "During the investigation evidence was collected in Livingston and Cleveland in regards to the motor vehicle thefts."

The Livingston Police Department and the Cleveland Police Department are working together on this case, and the press release stated that more charges could be pending against both Turney and Dick.
