Police: Same Shoplifters 'Hit' Giant on Consecutive Days

Customer loyalty is one thing, but this is the kind of repeat business a retail establishment doesn't need.

State police at Fogelsville said three people -- a man and woman in their 20s or 30s -- plus a 54-year-old man listed as being from Allentown placed some items worth $169.69 in reusable shopping bags between 2:11 and 2:30 p.m. Dec. 21. They left the 7150 Hamilton Blvd. store without paying.

The next day, between 5:30 and 5:50, the two men returned to the store, police said. One hid items in his coat and left without paying. This time the value was unknown.

Police said the two drove away in a 1990s GMC Jimmy.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 610-395-1438.
