BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Melbourne police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects who tried to steal more than $600 worth of items from a Melbourne Walmart store last week.

Melbourne Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Sheridan Shelley said the incident happened at about 9:11 p.m. on March 13 at the Wal-Mart at 1000 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne.

Shelley said two women entered the Walmart and began to fill a shopping cart full of items including personal hygiene products, hair care products, curling irons, bed sheets, drapes and a waste basket.

He said the women then went to the front of the store and began to place some of the items into Walmart shopping bags.

Once the items were bagged, the women pushed the shopping cart full of merchandise out of the store without paying.

Shelley said a Walmart security officer observed the suspects as they tried to leave the store with the stolen merchandise.

Once confronted by security, the suspects fled and the shopping cart and its contents were recovered.

Shelley said both women suspects are described as being white women, possibly Hispanic, about 5-foot-3 in height and weighing between 125 and 140 pounds.

He said they may have been driving a red 2000 to 2005 Chevy Impala.
