Oregon police search for electronics thieves

OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) - Oregon police are searching for suspects who they say stole thousands of dollars in electronics from Walmart by stuffing merchandise in their clothing, and it was all caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows the suspect prowling Walmart's aisles for electronics around 5 a.m. Tuesday.

He stuffs a boxed item into his pant leg, and has trouble walking. He leaves the store with the stolen goods, and drives away in a silver car.

The suspect was pushing his luck, and stole from the same store two days in a row. On the second day, he came back with friends.

Around the same time the next day, the suspect returned with two others. They drove away in a dark-colored van.

"As one was putting stuff in their clothing, the other two were acting as lookouts and they took turns until they pretty much loaded themselves up and walked out of the store." said Sergeant Tim Zale of the Oregon Police Department.

Altogether, the thieves stole $2500 in electronics The suspects managed to steal smart phones, Playstation controllers, portable DVD players, and a Blu-Ray player.

Police are hoping pictures of the suspects can help get them off the streets.

"I really do think from seeing this happen the last two days that our other suburbs, if they haven't already seen it, they're going to see it." Zale said.

If you recognize any of the suspects, call Oregon police at 419-698-7064.
