The Polk County Sheriff's Office is investigating two retail thefts from the CVS store at 6105 US 98 North in Lakeland, and they may be related.
The first case occurred on October 10th at about 5 AM.
A review of security video showed that a man and woman entered the store. The woman placed a Wahl body massage wrap into a bag, took it to the counter, and returned it for a refund. The male suspect used a lost/stolen ID during the transaction.
The man in this case was described as a black male, skinny, tall, and no hair. The woman was described as a heavy black female.
The second theft occurred on October 22nd at about 2 AM.
Security video shows what appears to be the same couple from the first theft.
The female picked up several items, concealed them, then left without paying for them.
