Police Looking for Men Involved in Theft at Liquor Store

The Orwigsburg Police Department is investigating a retail theft that occurred Thursday January 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm hours at the Wine & Spirts Store located at 705 West Market Street Orwigsburg.

The investigation revealed that the two black male suspects were described as 5’11” to 6’ tall wearing black pants and black sweat shirts. One of the males wore a black baseball cap and the other male wore a black wool hat.

While in the store, both suspects shoved various types of liquor down their pants. During this and previously reported incidents, one suspect distracts the store employee by asking a the store's clerk many questions while the other conceals the merchandise.

Upon checking out at the register, the clerk confronted one of the suspects with what he had shoved down his pants, at which time the male pulled two bottles of liquor from his pants and both subsequently fled the store.

The two suspects left the scene in a small black SUV, possibly a Jeep Liberty, with the last four digits of the Pennsylvania Registration being 9017. The vehicle traveled east on SR-443. Suspects matching the description were later reported to have been at the Wine and Spirit store in Hamburg, PA at approximately  6:00pm

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Orwigsburg Police Department at (570) 366-3102
