Police are seeking two men both of which have tattoos of bones in connection with incidents that occurred recently at Wal-Mart.

The first incident occurred shortly before 5 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21. A man, approximately 28-35 years old, who appeared to be Native American or Hispanic, exited the east doors of Wal-Mart after a transaction at one of the self-check-out registers.

The merchandise alarm sounded as he left the store.

Wal-Mart personnel noticed that he had three bones tattooed on the side of his neck, stacked one on top of the other horizontally.

Simultaneously, another man who also appeared to be Native American or Hispanic and close in age to the first walked into the east door of the store. He was wearing a white T-shirt and carried a black hoodie over his shoulder.

A short time later he was seen carrying a white box with black lettering “V Tech”. The box had a cable alarms strapped to it. Loss Prevention personnel approached this man and when they did, he reached in to his right front pants pocket and pulled out a small black gun. He pointed it at the store employee and stated “I’m taking this.”

The suspect left the store. Employees noticed that he had a tattoo of a bone on his forearm and finger bones tattooed on the back of his hand.

Through store surveillance it is believed that both of these men have stolen from the store before. The men were seen together in a black Chrysler. Police are sharing video surveillance pictures from the store in hopes of getting these suspects identified.
