Pineville (North Carolina) Police continue to investigate after catching three suspects they believe may be connected to an organized retail theft ring.
Officers recovered more than $10,000 in stolen items from a variety of stores in different cities. The shopping spree came to an end Thursday afternoon at Carolina Place Mall as the suspects were caught red handed.
Officers were on patrol at JCPenny when they were alerted to the thieves. Police say Rashard Tolliver and Erin Robbs collected 115 items from inside the store and were stashing them by the door.
“From clothing to merchandise and they were putting it close to the door in what we think was a stash and grab. There was a vehicle outside which led officers to a third person,” said Lieutenant Corey Copley with Pineville Police Department. The suspects tried to run away but they didn’t get very far.
