Blotter: Denton police search for couple after report of theft

Denton police officers are looking for a couple who, with a baby in tow, are said to have taken several items Sunday from a supermarket in the 1500 block of South Loop 288.

The loss-prevention officer at the store reported that he saw the suspects walking around the store and unwrapping several items and concealing them in the baby’s diaper bag. The loss-prevention officer said he tried to make contact with the suspects after they passed all points of sale without paying for the merchandise.

The couple fled and left behind most of the property, but were still able to get away with some of the stolen merchandise. The loss-prevention officer was able to give the Denton police officer the license plate of the vehicle in which the couple fled. Denton officers checked the address listed in the registration as well as the area around the business but did not find the suspect vehicle.
