Security cameras showed a black male and a black female entering the store and going directly to the electronics department.

The cell phones were taken from drawers in the electronics area and placed inside the box for a child’s car seat and backpack. They then went to the self-checkout where they scanned the box, paid cash and left the store.

The female suspect is described as wearing a green hat, black shirt, black pants, and white shoes. The male was wearing a black hat, dark jacket, dark pants, and a pink shirt.
