WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita police arrested two suspected shoplifters after they walked out of Cabela's in northeast Wichita with more than $5,000 worth of items.
Several Cabela's employees told police they watched a couple walk past the checkouts inside the store and to the parking lot. As they were loading up their car with all the loot, officers arrived on scene. Witnesses gave police the perfect description of the getaway car.
Investigators say 29-year-old Corey Hunter and 43-year-old Teresa Malone got onto the turnpike and headed south. About 40 minutes later, cops stopped the suspected thieves near the turnpike and K-15.
They found thousands of dollars in stolen items inside the car. The list is long including, two cross bows worth $4,000, gloves valued at $240, bags and backpacks, baby food, GPS cases, clothing and two-way radios. The amount stolen totals more than $5,000.
Hunter was just released from prison in March of 2013. He spent time behind bars for aggravated assault and aggravated battery dating back to 2007. Now, he faces the possibility of going back to prison if convicted.
Cabela's wouldn't comment on the crime.
