A man and woman backed their car up to the front door of the Bed, Bath & Beyond store in the 200 block of Harlem Avenue on Oct. 25 and went back-and-forth between the store and their trunk several times, loading it up with unpaid merchandise each time.
According to Forest Park police, the alleged thieves then drove away in a red Hyundai that was “smoking” as it left the area.
A store clerk yelled “excuse me” at the pair during their last trip out of the store but the remark was ignored. Another witness took a photo of the vehicle as it drove away.
The suspects are believed to be in their 50s or 60s. They made off with at least $200 in merchandise, police said.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
