Goshen police is one of several law enforcement agencies seeking the public’s assistance in identifying suspects wanted for questioning in numerous thefts from retails stores throughout the state.
Locally, four black males suspects, though there may be an additional person involved, are believed to be responsible for thefts of merchandise totaling more than $25,000. The suspects were witnessed entering the stores, proceeding directly to the electronics area, selecting several pieces of merchandise and immediately fleeing through an exit door of the store. Once outside, the suspects loaded the stolen items into a waiting vehicle.
A white Dodge Ram pickup and another white pickup truck with a white cap, reported to have a Florida license plate, have been witnessed.
