CATCH A CROOK: Help ID Greene County thieves caught on camera
This week the Greene County sheriff wants your help catching 3 crooks. The first video shows a couple of guys taking off with a truck.
The theft happened at the Sac River Stables near Fantastic Caverns on July 16, 2019 just after 5:00 a.m.
The security video shows a vehicle arrive on the property. You see a man get out. He then gets into a gray Ford F-250 with a camper shell. The man drives off in the truck and the other follows him off the property in the other vehicle. Sheriff Jim Arnott says the thieves also got away with thousands of dollars in equipment used at the stables. The truck has not been located.
The second video shows a woman investigators say is connected to a burglary in south Springfield. Sheriff Arnott says the home burglary happened just after midnight in the 5600 block of South Newton on June 25, 2019.
Security cameras at a Walmart caught a woman leaving the store just after 8:00 a.m. on the same day of the burglary. Arnott says the woman leaving with a shopping cart had used stolen credit cards from the home on South Newton to buy her items. The surveillance camera at the exit got clear video of the woman's face.
Investigators also say she used the stolen credit cards at 3 more Walmart locations in Springfield and wracked up about $1300 in charges. Arnott says she made the fraudulent purchases at 2 Walmarts on South Glenstone, one on South Campbell and the Walmart on Independence.
