Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers
LUFKIN, TX (News Release) - The first week of June, two women managed to steal nearly $8,000 from cash registers in Walmart and Crime Stoppers wants to reward an anonymous tipster for identifying the thieves.
The women left the store before their crime was discovered but it was caught on camera, and portions of the video are posted online at www.DETCS.tips. The video angles and resolution prevent clearly seeing how they defeated the locks and opened the cash drawers but they likely had keys.
The thieves used clothing from the store to shield their actions as they stole the higher denomination bills, $20s, $50s, and $100s, from eight registers.
They used hats to keep their faces hidden from the cameras, but they provided enough clues for someone to identify them. The first thief, the one who opened the cash registers, is a black female wearing white shoes, white capris, and a white, short-sleeve shirt with shoulder cutouts. She wore eyeglasses and pulled her hair into a ponytail through the back of a pink cap with embellishments to its front and bill. The second thief, also a black female, was much heavier than the first. She wore flip flops, knee-length shorts, a yellow, collared, short-sleeve shirt, and a cap embellished with a cross on the front and what might be rhinestones covering the bill.
If you can identify either thief, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or submit a tip online at www.DETCS.tips. Crime Stoppers calls and tips are anonymous and the first, most accurate tip that leads to an arrest may be eligible for a reward.
