Waupun hardware store theft suspects

The Waupun Police Department has asked for help identifying two suspects involved in a July retail theft. A third suspect was identified, police said Friday, Aug. 6.

According to police, the suspects went into a hardware store near Main Street and Country Park Road the afternoon of July 23.

The suspects appeared to do miscellaneous shopping. One of them grabbed a red Milwaukee Tool case and put it in a shopping cart.

Roughly 40 minutes after they entered the store, one of the suspects pushed the cart to the back of the store and appeared to scan the store for employees while the other two suspects left. When no employees were seen, the suspect removed the case from the cart and left through an alarmed exit door.
