Pasco Police seeking two price-tag switching suspects

October 7th, last Friday, the PPD responded to a theft that had occurred at the Pasco Walmart.

According to officers, these two suspects went through the self-checkout line but did not pay for their merchandise correctly or legally.

PPD says they used price tags from less expensive items to buy a lot of merchandise for just a few dollars. A few years ago this kind of theft began to accelerate in our area, but kind of died down a bit.

Apparently, store workers discovered the theft, but not before the couple had fled the store. They were said to be driving a dark grey sedan with a black wheel on the right front, and silver wheels on the other three wheels.
