Surprise, AZ (July 9, 2015) On March 1, 2015 at approximately 10 am, Surprise Police responded to a shoplifting report at the Fry’s Marketplace located near Litchfield Road and Waddell Road, in Surprise. Upon arrival, officers discovered three suspects had exited the store without paying for several items of merchandise.

According to eye witnesses, the first suspect was described as a Hispanic male, with a dark beard and goatee, wearing dark colored shorts, a gray tee-shirt, and a black hat. The second suspect was described as a Hispanic male had a scar on the right side of his face and was wearing a black sweatshirt, faded blue jean pants, and a maroon hat. The third suspect was also described as a Hispanic and was wearing a white button down shirt with plaid flannel print, blue jean pants, and a red and white hat.

After committing the crime, the suspects exited the store, were confronted by store employees, and then fled from the business by entering a vehicle being driven by a fourth person (unknown description). The vehicle was described as a grey 4-door Pontiac with dark tinted windows.

Shortly after the shoplifting incident, the vehicle was located. When an officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver of the vehicle accelerated at a high rate of speed. Due to the reckless driving exhibited and the potential dangers created by pursuing the vehicle, the officer decided not to continue the pursuit.

Anyone with information that could help identify the suspect vehicle or the suspects is asked to call Detective Forbrook at 623.222.TIPS (8477) or email
