Authorities have security camera photos of three people and an SUV, all suspected of being involved in thefts from the Massena and Potsdam Walmarts Monday evening a little more than an hour apart.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office and the Massena Police Department are conducting a joint investigation.

At about 6:45 p.m. Monday, three people, one male and two females, entered the Massena Walmart and stole several tablets from the electronics department valued at over $4,000 and left the store. They left in a light colored Chevrolet/GMC suburban.

At approximately 7:50 p.m. the same three individuals entered the Potsdam Walmart where they stole numerous cellular phones valued at over $20,000 from the electronics division and then left the store, a press release from the Sheriff’s Department said.

Those two incidents might be associated with a similar larceny last Thursday of tablets valued at over $4,000.

The Sheriff’s Department is asking the public if they have any information on the above larcenies to call the Detective Division at 379-2360.
