Employees of a shoe store filed online theft reports for two shoplifting incidents that occurred back-to-back. During the first incident, a man and a woman walked into the store carrying a large bag. The woman was distracting an employee by asking product questions while the man was on video chat with another woman. He was walking down the aisle of Nike shoes and the woman was telling him shoe sizes to select. The pair grabbed several pairs of sneakers and ran out of the store. Approximately 30 minutes later, a man entered the store and was greeted by employees. They asked if they could help him find anything and he responded, “whatever.” He grabbed four boxes of sneakers and ran out of the store.

Deputies were dispatched to an attempted carjacking that had just occurred at an apartment complex across the street from our Parkland-Spanaway precinct.
