Crime Stoppers will pay people cash for information if it will help the Van Wert Police Department solve its investigation of a theft that occurred at the Van Wert Walmart.

On Friday, December 4, a female wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, with a tattoo above her left eye, and a male wearing a gray-colored Champion sweatshirt with black sweatpants attempted to leave the Van Wert Walmart Supercenter with unpaid merchandise. Both fled in a newer greenish colored vehicle. The Van Wert Police Department is asking for assistance in helping to identify these two individuals (see photos below).

Remember, crime doesn’t pay, but Crime Stoppers does!
