Duo wanted after robbing Marysville store

MARYSVILLE, OH (WCMH) — A man and a woman are wanted after stealing a cart full of items from a retail store.

Investigators said the two adults entered the Tractor Supply Company on State Route 36 in Marysville at about 2:30pm on Aug. 8. Posing as customers, the woman distracted the clerks and sales associates by asking questions about boots while the male suspect loaded a shopping cart with large boxes of merchandise.

Both suspects left the store without paying for the items.

Investigators later learned these two suspects attempted a similar crime at the Lowe’s Home Improvement store in the same area. But they left without any items when they realized they were being watched by store employees.
