CANTON — The Canton Police Department needs help from the public in identifying two suspects wanted for shoplifting at the local Target at Canton Marketplace.

Police on Tuesday issued security photos from the store taken of the suspects.

The pair is believed to be responsible for shoplifting video games and electronic equipment during a series of visits to the store, according to Lt. German Rivas, the uniform patrol division commander.

The two men are both described in a police report as white males, with sandy blonde hair and a medium to slim build, and around 5 feet, 6 inches tall.

The first known incident occurred on Sept. 8 when one of the suspects allegedly entered the store and made off with a set of headphones that were removed from their packaging.

Over the next week the suspects are believed to have taken around $700 in merchandise from the store.

“The Canton Police Department needs help from the public in identifying the people responsible,” Rivas said in a release.

The suspects usually left the store on foot and walked toward Dick’s Sporting Goods store, according to the police report. The type of vehicle used by the suspects is unknown.

On Sept. 9 the store employee confronted one of the suspects as he appeared to be leaving the store and recovered the electronic equipment he had in his possession, which he said he did not want, according to the police report.

Anyone who recognizes the men or has information about the suspects or the crimes is asked to call Det. Dan Combs with the Canton Police at (770) 720-4883.
