The sheriff’s office is looking for any information into the identity of two suspects involved in a theft from local stores. The third suspect has been identified.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is searching for three men responsible for stealing more than $1,000 in Tide laundry detergent, Pampers diapers and 3M air filters from grocery stores in Cumming and Suwanee.

According to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, three male suspects loaded shopping carts with $789 of worth merchandise and walked out of the Publix on Bethelview Road in Cumming without paying at about 3:40 p.m. on Jan. 13.

Rainwater said that the men then proceeded to the Kroger shopping center at 3651 Peachtree Parkway, Suwanee and stole the same three products.

He said that the men attempted to repeat their crime at the next Kroger at 1595 Peachtree Parkway, Cumming but they were “disrupted by an employee”.

Rainwater said that one of the suspects has been identified and arrest warrants have been issued for the man.

The sheriff’s office is still looking for any information into the identity of the two other suspects.

All three were last seen getting into a white 1980s or 1990s pickup truck with a “cap on the bed”.

Rainwater asked that anyone with info on the other two suspects contact Det. Mike Downing at 678-513-5984 or mjdowning@forsythco.com.
