Police are investigating a shoplifting by two men at the CVS/pharmacy on County Road on Tuesday evening, May 17. They are asking for help in identifying the two suspects, seen on surveillance recordings.
Both men are described as black in their early 20s.
One is about 6-foot to 6-foot-2 and weighs about 190 pounds. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt, jeans, and a black baseball hat with a gold letter "P" (Pittsburgh Pirates), with no facial hair.
The second man is about 5-foot-9 to 5- foot-11 and weighs about 170 pounds. He was wearing a gray jacket, jeans, a black baseball hat, perhaps with a Pirates of the Caribbean logo. He has long braid or dreads and a goatee.
The men are believed to have left the store with their pants bulging as if they had items concealed in them. The two suspects walked out the front door and turned west towards Staples and the East Bay Bike Path.
A security tape was reviewed to track the suspect’s movements in the store, police said.
They entered the store at 6:12 pm and headed toward aisle #7 -- health care/beauty. The video shows one suspect "blocking" while the other suspect "stuffs" contraband down his pants, police said.
They then walk further down the aisle before returning and repeating the theft of Olay beauty products and Oral- B toothbrush heads. The suspects left the store at 6:16 pm.
An inventory revealed the theft of $1,721 worth of Olay Prox and Oral -B products.
