Stop Thief! Clothes snatch-n-grab in Southaven

It's not polite to punch a lady.

A female employee at It's Fashion Metro, 453 State Line Rd. in Southaven, MS, took a hit when she tried to stop the two bozos below.  She tussled with them at the exit when they tried to escape with four arms full of Coogi jackets and blue jeans.

"She's on the phone, calling the police (before the fight)," says Lt. Mark Little of the Southaven Police Department's investigations division and member of ALERT (Area Law Enforcement & Retailers Team), "and it may be that they were on the other side of the store, grabbing merchandise, and she saw them. But she just nonchalantly locks the door."

The suspects wrestle with the employee as they rush the door with the merchandise.  The Action News 5 Scam Cam shows them dropping some of the clothes, but they manage to unlock the deadbolt and escape.

"We think they got away with about $1,439 worth of merchandise," says Little.

Because of their theft, YOU'RE STUCK ... paying an average extra $1.25 on every Coogi jacket and pair of blue jeans to cover the loss.

Know these guys?  Where do they live?  E-mail Action News 5's Andy Wise at awise@wmctv.com or call ALERT's hotline at 901-756-LOSS.
