The Beeville Police Department and Bee County Crime Stoppers are looking for information that could lead to the arrest and grand jury indictment of a theft suspect.

The information might lead to a reward of as much as $1,000 by the Crime Stoppers organization.

According to BPD investigators, the crime was reported at about 4:55 p.m. Tuesday, March 16.

An officer was dispatched to the Wal-Mart Supercenter, 502 E. FM 351, after an employee there called to report a theft.

The officer spoke to a 23-year-old loss prevention officer who said that on March 6 at approximately 5:24 p.m., an unidentified female took two computers without paying for them.

The employee showed the officer a video of the theft.

The video showed a a thin Hispanic female wearing a white shirt and blue jeans taking the computers from the electronics shelf and placing them in her basket.

The woman then pushed her basket to the pet department where she left it unattended and walked out through the garden center doors.

Minutes later, the woman walked back into the store through the main entrance and went back to her basket.

Then she pushed the basket with the two computers out the garden center exit.

The employee said the cost of the computers came to approximately $1,296.

The officer turned the information over to the BPD’s Criminal Investigation Division for further investigation. Detectives also took a copy of the security system video.

Anyone interested in earning a reward is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hot Line at 362-0206 or the toll-free number at (877) 362-0206.
