Pair sought in theft of TV sets from Gonzales Wal-Mart

Two men are wanted for allegedly stealing two big-screen television sets from the Wal-Mart store in Gonzales on Saturday night.

The two men were seen on surveillance video around 9:30 p.m. taking two 50-inch LG TV sets with a combined value of more than $1,600 from the store on Airline Highway, Gonzales Police Sgt. Steve Nethken said in a news release.

They pushed the TVs into the exterior portion of the store’s garden center, and while one waited with the TVs, the other drove a vehicle around to the center.

The television sets were then taken out of the store through a fire exit, and the two men fled the area northbound on Airline.

Anyone with information about the men’s identities or whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867 or the Gonzales Police Department at (225) 647-7511.
