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.
The suspects were spotted leaving both businesses in a light-colored Hyundai Elantra. The Ohio license plate is GMQ4654, which registers to a 1974 Plymouth.
