Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking for the public’s help in a retail theft investigation.
At approximately 10:22 p.m., on Sunday January 7, 2018 a retail theft occurred at the Walgreens located at 6730 Hwy 98 N Lakeland, FL.
Two unknown black males walked into Walgreens and asked the clerk to retrieve items for them. The clerk asked the suspects for identification for the requested items, and told detectives that one of the suspects was born in 1996 and the other suspect in 1998. When the store clerk gave the requested items to the two males, they requested another item. When the store clerk gave them the third item, they grabbed all three items and fled the store in an unknown direction.
