Detectives Need Help Identifying Two Aggressive Shoplifters

On May 24, Overland Park Officers were called to the Best Buy store at 11525 Metcalf Ave. regarding two shoplifters, one of which assaulted a Loss Prevention Officer (LPO) on the way out of the store.

The LPO said he observed two men select three X-Box gaming systems from the shelf and quickly head toward the front doors. When the LPO tried to stop them at the exit, one of the suspects shoved the LPO down and tried to punch him when he got up. 

The Loss Prevention Officer sustained minor injuries as a result of the altercation. Both suspects were last seen leaving the parking lot in a dark-colored SUV with Missouri tags that was described as having heavy front-end damage.

Anyone with information on the identity of these two shoplifters is asked to contact the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park Police at 913-344-8750.
