Distracting Thieves Hit Greenville & Kinston Walmarts

Police say two men who were caught on surveillance video after they stole money from a Walmart cash register are now believed to have done it in multiple cities here in Eastern Carolina.

Last week Kinston police released photos of three men who they say distracted a cashier and then made off with several hundred dollars from the register.

Now Greenville police say the same thing happened at their Walmart on March 15th. Police say it took place the day before the Kinston theft around 4:45 p.m.

Greenville police released photos today of two men who they say are suspects in the theft.

Anyone with information about these men should call Greenville police at 252-329-4315 or CrimeStoppers at 252-758-7777.
