Thieves take $500 worth of Apple electronics, police say


VALPARAISO — Theft suspects strolled out of a store with $500 worth of Apple products in tow without paying, police say.   

Valparaiso Police are investigating the theft and asking the public's help in identifying the suspects, who were caught on store surveillance cameras.

The theft happened at 11 p.m. April 1 in the Meijer, at 405 Porters Vale Blvd., a Valparaiso Police Department spokesperson said.

Police said the woman caught on surveillance footage concealed several items in excess of $500 worth of merchandise and allegedly left the store, making no attempt to pay for them. The man with her acted as a look out while she picked the items.

They were both seen leaving the area in a blue or green Pontiac Grand Prix, which was also caught on surveillance footage.

Anyone with information on the theft or suspects is asked to call Det. Melanie Sheets at 219-462-2135. People can also text to TIP411 at 847-411 and should type “Valpo” in the message field before sending the text message.
