New suspects discovered in Melbourne crime ring
MELBOURNE, Fla. -

Melbourne police are investigating a retail theft team they believe is responsible for stealing more than $10,000 worth of merchandise from a mall store.

Photos of two of the suspected thieves were first released in August, and in reviewing security footage, Melbourne police discovered two more culprits. The team is suspected of stuffing clothing, especially Polo brand shirts, into shopping bags and walking out of a Macy’s without paying.

In the most recent update, police described one of the culprits as a black woman about 5 feet 5 inches tall and about 200 pounds. They described the second as a black man about 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 160 pounds. Melbourne police believe the duo to be in their teens or early 20s.

Previously, police said two women were responsible for the thefts.
