Four Mississippi residents suspected in crimes in several counties were arrested in Monticello Saturday following an alleged theft on July 30 at the Wal-Mart Supercenter.
Saturday, five days after Monticello police began investigating a July 30 theft at Wal-Mart the alleged thieves returned to the store where they were seen by the store’s loss prevention officers. Police were called and all four were arrested, according to a news release from Monticello Police Chief Eddy Deaton.
Deaton did not release the names and ages of the suspects.
“One adult female was caught in the parking lot as she exited the business, an adult male and female inside the store and one adult male left on foot and was caught at Taco Bell,” Deaton said. “All four suspects reside in Greenville, Mississippi and it is believed that the group has committed crimes in several counties.”
Deaton said the alleged thieves stole electronics and school supplies valued at nearly $2,500 and are suspected in crimes in other counties as well. The case is still under investigation.
