Kingsport asks for help identifying tablet thieves


Kingsport Police are asking for help identifying two suspects, who they say stole six computer tablets from Wal-Mart on West Stone Drive.

Detectives say on February 2, the two men opened a cardboard box containing an inexpensive grill set, emptied the contents, placed the six computer tablets inside, and then resealed the box.

They say the men then checked out and paid roughly $11 for the grill set, which in reality contained the six computer tablets with a value of approximately $600.

Police say the suspects were driving a compact red or maroon 4-door hatchback or station wagon, believed to possibly be a Subaru Legacy or Forester.

Video surveillance footage from the incident can be viewed on the Kingsport Police Department YouTube channel via the link below:


Anyone who can help detectives identify either of these two individuals is asked to contact the Kingsport Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
