Vitamin thieves in Rite Aide
Town Center Lake Forest Park

From Q13 Washington's Most Wanted

An organized retail thief bolts out of a drug store with a big batch of vitamins in a basket — almost running over a little kid on his way out.

This happened at the Rite Aid in Lake Forest Park Town Center on March 10, 2019 and detectives say the suspect didn’t act alone.

“The fact that they came in and the first individual picked up one of the baskets and started putting items into it and then switched to the other individual after it was full, is an indication that they were working together,” said Lake Forest Park Police Det. Tony Matthews.
“I imagine it, this is probably not their first rodeo. We all know that anybody that shoplifts will shoplift till they get caught, so they’ve done it before and in a lot of cases they continue to do it.”

Detectives say the bigger guy in the black beanie left the store first to go get their getaway ride ready. His smaller buddy strolled out about 15 seconds later, again, having to dodge a child to make off with more than $1,200 worth of GNC vitamins and health products.

Detectives say both suspects are white.
