Police are searching for two men Wednesday morning who put two 27-inch television sets in a shopping cart at the Manchester Highlands Walmart and walked out of the store.
Manchester Police Captain Charles Hunn tells Town and Country - Manchester Patch that the crime happened around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at the store located across the street from the Manchester Police Department.
"This was not an armed robbery. There were no weapons, no physical contact, nobody hit by a car. It was basically a stealing," Hunn tells Patch. "It was a felony stealing because the tvs were in excess of five-hundred dollars."
Hunn said a security clerk followed the two men out the front door as they allegedly stole the tvs. He said the clerk told them to stop and tried to pull the cart away from the men, but they loaded the tvs in their green Jeep Liberty and drove off.
Police said the two were caught on surveillance video and police have a license plate. Hunn said they have one suspect already identified through a photo lineup, although he is not in custody.
"We know who the other suspect is and we anticipate an arrest shortly," Hunn tells Patch.
Hunn said one suspect is in his 20s, the other is beleived to be in his 40s. Hunn said neither is a Manchester resident and both are believed to be from north St. Louis.
