SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Sylvester Police are looking for a man and a woman who stole $1,400 worth of thermostats from Walmart, and then tried to get refunds for them. It happened Monday night, March 13, about 8:00.

The woman walked out of the store with several stolen items, and got into an older model Chevrolet Trailblazer that was waiting at the front of the store.

Minutes later, a man got out of the truck with a bag containing seven thermostats, and tried to get a refund for them.

Store staff refused to give a refund, then soon, the woman came back, attempting to get a refund.

This time she showed a driver’s license with the name of Alexandra Reed Thomas. She is a white woman, age 23, height 5' 4",  107 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair, with a Dothan, Alabama address.

The vehicle seen on video is an older Chevrolet Trailblazer, tan color, with a gray door on driver’s side.

Two other people suspected of stealing from Walmart in Albany and Sylvester were arrested in Alabama two weeks ago.

If you have any information on these two suspects, please contact Sylvester Police at 229-776-8500 or 229-776-8219.
