Henry County Police are attempting to identify, and locate, four suspects, who were reportedly seen taking stolen items from a McDonough department store.

The felony shoplifting case originated at 12:56 p.m., on Feb. 26, inside the Target store at 1850 Jonesboro Rd., according to Police Capt. Jason Bolton.

Authorities are reportedly seeking two black men and two black women, in the case.

"The suspects ... shoplifted in excess of $1,300 in merchandise," Bolton said.

The female suspects are described, respectively, as 5-feet, 4-inches tall and weighing 120 pounds, and 5-feet, 2-inches tall and weighing 110 pounds.

One of the men being sought in the case is described as 6-feet, 3-inches tall and 190 pounds, and the other as 5-feet, 7-inches tall and 170 pounds.

Bolton said the foursome, after allegedly stealing the items, left the scene in a brown, Chevrolet Tahoe. The last three digits of the vehicle's tag, the captain added, are possibly: 434.

Police have obtained video-surveillance footage of the suspects.

Anyone with information on the identities, or whereabouts of the suspects, is asked to contact Police Detective Dean Watson, by phone at (770) 288-8496, by FAX at (770) 288-7613, or via e-mail at dwatson@co.henry.ga.us.
