BEEVILLE — The Beeville Police Department and Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers organization are looking for information that could lead to the arrest of a man and woman suspected of stealing more than $3,400 worth of electronics equipment from the Walmart Supercenter recently.

According to Police Chief Joe Treviño, the pair walked into the store at 3:49 p.m. on July 28.

Both entered the store through the main entrance, the woman walking alone and the man entering behind her and pushing a shopping cart.

Using images captured on Walmart’s security cameras, the man was clearly wearing a green scrub outfit with matching shirt and pants. He also wore what appeared to be dark athletic shoes.

The woman stayed near the front of the store while the man pushed the cart to the back of the business, stopping to pick up a storage box and then moving on to the electronics section of the store.

She was wearing what appeared to be a pink blouse and pink shorts.

Then the man began to place items in the cart, loading up a blue, plastic storage box first and then placing the merchandise into the box.

The items included a Samsung Blu-ray disc player, several computer routers and external hard drives and some power connections.

Security cameras showed the woman leaving the store, getting into a white sedan and pulled up to a side door to wait for the man to leave.

He then left the business with the items concealed in the covered, blue storage box, loaded the items in the vehicle, and she drove out of the parking lot.

An alarm sounded when the side door was opened, and store employees checked to see what had triggered the alarm.

Checking the images on the store’s video cameras showed employees exactly how the theft took place.

Patrolman Baldo Salazar was called to the scene along with his supervisor, Sgt. Chris Vasquez.

Detective Rene Guerrero took charge of the investigation.

Any information that could lead to an arrest in the theft could secure a reward for the witness with the tip.

Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 for information that could lead to an arrest.

Anyone who might be able to identify the pair is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 362-0206 or call toll-free at (877) 362-0206.
