Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office Detectives need the public’s assistance identifying 5 suspects involved in IPad and IPod thefts

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying five people who were photographed loading up on Apple products from Walmarts in Palm Beach County, and possibly Broward County.

Around 11 p.m. on Oct. 30, three black men are photographed walking into a West Palm Beach Walmart, at 4375 Belvedere Road, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera statement released this morning.

Two black woman followed them, and after picking out a backpack and crowbar, walked to the back of the store where the electronics are kept.

One of the men, photographed wearing a white tank-top with black shorts and a white hat, walked behind a showcase holding Apple iPads and iPods and used a crowbar to open the door. The second man, photographed wearing jeans and a purple and blue striped button-down shirt, paced back and forth looking for any store employees then went behind the counter to help. The two men filled the backpack with iPads and iPods as the other three were the lookouts, Barbera said.

The third man involved is photographed wearing jeans and an orange shirt.

The two women are photographed wearing a pink shirt with pink and white pants, and a green shirt with a face on it and a black sweater over it.

All five suspects left the Walmart in a “2006 or 2010” Dodge Charger with the Apple products, and about 30 minutes later entered another Walmart, at 6294 Forest Hill Blvd., in Greenacres. They were able to leave that store with iPads and iPods also, according to the statement.

Barbera said detectives think these five have also committed this organized theft in Broward County
