Clearwater police seeking trio suspected in Walmart thefts

Published May 10, 2017

CLEARWATER — Police want help finding three suspected thieves, one of whom they say was carrying a baby while making off with merchandise.

On Tuesday morning, Clearwater police say a woman went to customer service at the Walmart on the corner of U.S. 19 and State Road 590 to buy a gift card with cash. But she also grabbed several empty plastic bags.

Then she met with two other people, who had been walking the store and picking up items such as clothing, towels, lighters and lip balm. Two of them put those items into the empty store bags while the other acted as a lookout.

They walked out without paying. The three were last seen leaving the parking lot in a burgundy Chevy Impala that had a spare tire on the front driver's side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Clearwater Police at (727)-562-4242.
