Cape Coral Police detectives seek suspects in razor thefts
Cape Coral police detectives are asking the public for help in identifying two suspects in the theft of nearly $1,900 in razors stolen from the Wal-Mart on Del Prado Boulevard in May.
The investigation began on May 28 after Cape Coral Police responded to the Wal-Mart at 1619 Del Prado Blvd S. in reference to a retail theft that had happened a couple of weeks earlier.
According to Wal-Mart Loss Prevention, on May 16, a man who has not yet been identified grabbed a bag off of a shelf at approximately 5 a.m. and went directly to the razor aisle. Once he was in the razor aisle he selected multiple razors and concealed them in the bag, officials said, adding the man then proceeded past all registers without paying for the concealed razors. He left through the entry/exit doors near the grocery section, passing all points of sale and then ran into the parking lot where he was picked up by a silver SUV (unknown make and model). The driver of the SUV is not visible through the video.
Fifty-one non-electric razors were taken with a total value of $1,864.19. The razors have not been recovered.
The same man and an accomplice reportedly attempted to take more razors the following week on May 21 at around 2:30 a.m. police officials said, but were stopped by store employees.
“These same suspects are wanted in connection with numerous retail thefts of razors all over Southwest Florida, totaling over $12,000,” CCPD officials said in a release issued Monday.
Anyone with information on the identity of these suspects is asked to contact the Cape Coral Police Department at 239-574-3223. You can also submit an anonymous tip.
