2 men sought in Walmart grand theft

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Deputies are looking for two men who are accused of stealing four flat screen TVs at a St. Johns County Walmart early Wednesday morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on Feb. 3, the thieves entered Walmart off U.S. 1 South, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the men took four flat screen televisions, loaded them into a shopping cart and walked to the front of the store.

One of the men was stopped by an employee who asked for a receipt. The man gave that employee a different receipt and continued out the door, said the SJSO.

When the employee saw the receipt was for a food item, she went into the parking lot and watched the two get into a black Dodge pickup truck and they were last seen leaving through the rear entrance.

St. Johns County deputies said the two men were described as white males, one in his mid-20's and the other in his early 30's dressed in black clothing.  The pickup truck also had a chrome tool box in the bed.

Anyone with any information about the men’s identities is asked to contact Detective Sheldon at the St. Johns Count Sheriff’s Office at (904) 824-8304, or by email at syork@sjso.org. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-(888) 277- TIPS (8477).
