BANGOR – Police are trying to identify alleged shoplifters that made off with more thatn $1,000 worth of merchandise from Target on Saturday.
On Jan. 22, around 5:30 p.m., Officer Brian Smith responded to Target on Longview Drive for the report of a theft. Smith learned that a man and a woman accompanied by an approximately 10-years-old boy, had reportedly stolen over $1,000 dollars worth of merchandise from the store.
The suspects reportedly parked a Red, Ford F150 like pickup truck on the side of the building and then all three shopped for over an hour. The woman left the store and the man and child go through the register where all the items are scanned. The male suspect then produced a debit card that would not allow for the purchase, so the man and child take the cart, now full of scanned and unpaid merchandise, and walk to customer service. At that point, the woman re-enters the building and then both adult suspects and child leave the store with the cart, load up the pickup truck, and leave with the stolen merchandise, according to police.
Anyone with information as to the identity of the male and female suspects in the photographs attached are asked to call Officer Brian Smith at 947-7382 extension 95775, or press extension 6 if you wish to remain anonymous by utilizing the Tip Line.
