DAVENPORT (FOX 13) - Polk County detectives are searching for shoplifters who stole from a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Davenport, and pried open the exit doors to run out with baskets filled with merchandise.
Investigators released surveillance video on the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, showing the four suspects walking into the store in Posner Park, calling them the “fearless foursome.” Each person was seen grabbing a green shopping hand basket at the entrance.
Soon after, loss prevention employees tried to stop them from exiting the store, according to detectives, by shutting the automatic exit doors from opening. However, the suspects were seen prying open the doors, grabbing the items, including socks, that fell out of their baskets, and running out the store.
Investigators said they stole $7,600 worth of Nike brand clothing.
One suspect, seen wearing a red shirt and pants with sandals was identified as 20-year-old Kierin Jaquarius Andre, who lives in Orlando, and they need help locating him. Detectives said they still need help identifying three of the suspects. The incident occurred in May.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Lockard at 863-298-6200 or 863-292-3300. An anonymous tip can be submitted to Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-8477 or www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com.
