Valley police investigators are looking for a couple who appear to have stolen over $50,000 worth of cellphones last week, according to a Tuesday news release.
Valley police Maj. Mike Reynolds said officers were called to Walmart on Feb. 8 by store security, who reported that two unknown people had stolen over 50 cell phones.
Reynolds said security video showed that a black man and black woman entering the store around 7 a.m. and went directly to the electronics department. He said the video shows the woman breaking into a drawer while the man served as a look out.
The couple put the phones — valued at over $50,000 — in an empty car-seat box and a backpack, then went through the self-check-out where they scanned the box, paid for it in cash and left, according to Reynolds.
The woman was described as wearing a green hat, black shirt, black pants, and white shoes. The man was wearing a black hat, dark jacket, dark pants, and a pink shirt.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call the Valley Police Department at 334-756-5200 or Valley Area Crime Stoppers at 334-756-8200.
