Be On The Lookout: Two theft cases, hit and run remain unsolved

In this week’s Be On The Lookout, police need you to help them find five people they say are involved in three separate unsolved crimes in Marion, Illinois.

The first case involves a man and woman at the Marion Wal-Mart. Marion Police say they pushed out a large amount of merchandise in a basket without paying. The two then left in a silver car. This happened on Nov. 25.

Then, on Dec.31, police say two men did the same thing at the Wal-Mart in town. They pushed a shopping cart out of the store without paying. Police say they then loaded a generator into a white SUV and left the parking lot.

Finally, police are trying to find the people involved in a hit and run at the Illinois Star Centre Mall on Jan. 20. The crash happened just after 2 p.m. in front of the Target. The suspect was driving a maroon car and remains unidentified. The woman pictured in a surveillance image provided by police is believed to have been a passenger in that car.

If you have any information about these three cases, contact Marion Police at 618-993-2124. You can also check out their Facebook page by clicking here.
