Police seek help in finding Kohl's retail theft suspects in Brookfield

BROOKFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Brookfield police are seeking help in finding the suspects involved in a retail theft at Kohl's in Brookfield.

Police say both are male suspects. They committed a retail theft, or what Kohl's calls a "quick change scam".

Police say the first suspect is heavy set with a beard, wearing a New York Yankees hat, white polo, camo shorts and white Adidas shoes.

Police say the second suspect is medium build, wearing a red Ohio State hat, blue polo, dark shorts and black Adidas shoes.

The first suspect tried to check out at a register with $900 worth of items. Police say he tried to pay in cash, but after the employee counts all of the cash, he asks for the cash back. Police say the suspect put some of the cash in his pocket without the employee noticing and hands the employee the rest of the cash.

Police say the employee did not notice that all of the cash owed was not there. The employee finished the transaction without recounting the money.

Police say that while the first suspect was at the register, the second suspect was at the customer service desk returning merchandise from a previous purchase he had made at a different Kohl's location. According to police, he was given cash in return. 

Police say that both suspects were involved in the retail theft.

If you have any information, please contact Officer M. Murphy of the Brookfield Police Department at (262)-787-3702.
