PALM HARBOR — Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office detectives are now seeking public assistance in identifying and locating three grand theft suspects.

According to police reports, three people collaborated to steal merchandise from the Palm Harbor Walmart store at 35404 U.S. 19 on the night of March 26.

The incident occurred at approximately 11:15 p.m. and the three suspects are observed via security-camera footage arriving in a red Ford extended-cab pickup truck.

Two of the three suspects, one male and one female, exit the truck and are seen entering the store and walking around grabbing various items.

The surveillance footage can be viewed on the Sheriff’s Office YouTube page by entering “Pinellas Sheriff” in the site’s search bar.

The male is described as white and between 20 and 30 years old. He is seen wearing blue jeans, gray sneakers, a dark ball cap and a black jacket with lettering on the back that reads, “ACTS Security.”

His female accomplice is white with light-brown hair and is also estimated to be between 20 and 30 years of age. She was wearing a light-gray sweater and light-gray hospital scrubs.

The third suspect stayed with the truck and is not seen on camera.

Once inside the store, the two suspects are seen taking a shopping cart and filling it up. Once full, they both walk out of the store and return to the truck.

No information has been revealed about what specifically was stolen. Detectives assigned to the Burglary and Pawn Unit are advising anyone with information on the theft to contact Det. Adam Sarlo at (727) 582-6200 or call Crime Stoppers at (800) 873-TIPS to remain anonymous.
