Crime Stoppers needs help finding three Walmart thieves
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help tracking down a trio of thieves who hit a North Fort Myers Walmart three times within one hour, shoplifting nearly $2,000 worth of home goods.
On Sunday three black females entered the Walmart on Pine Island Road, proceeding directly to the housewares section of the store.
Two women loaded a grocery cart to its fullest with a variety of items, while the third stood watch for security guards or employees.
All three women then left the store without paying.
After unloading the items into a silver Pontiac, the women entered the store and repeated the process three more times.
In total, the 83 items stolen from the store added up to $1,994.55.
Upon review of surveillance video, security personnel and law enforcement were able to immediately identify one of the suspects as 25-year-old Shanice Stewart.
Stewart was arrested earlier this summer, as a result of a barrage of Crime Stoppers tips, after bringing her children to a store in Fort Myers, then having one of her children steal a woman’s wallet – later taking them all on a shopping spree at the Edison Mall.
A warrant for the arrest of Shanice Stewart, on charges of grand theft, has been issued, however detectives need the public’s help tracking Stewart down, and identifying the two other women who committed the thefts alongside Stewart.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Stewart, or the identities of the other two women in the attached photos, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS .
All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
