Police say 5 suspects identified, accused of stealing $500+ worth of items from Walmart

BURLINGTON — Police in Burlington said on Friday, Feb. 2 that they have identified five suspects who walked out of the Walmart store on Milwaukee Ave. in Burlington on Jan. 23 without paying for more than $500 worth of merchandise. Officials credit tips from the public for assisting in this case.

According to police, three black females and two black males entered the store around 6 p.m. that date — and took 61 cans of baby formula, three chokers, three “Heather” tees, four weekend bags and candy — items valued at more than $500.

The females were at the same store on Jan. 4 and attempted to steal formula, but police said they realized a loss prevention officer was watching them, and they “dropped” the items and left the store.
