Two suspects captured, two still at large following string of thefts in Memphis, Southaven
SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — Two adults are now behind bars, accused of hitting four different cell phone stores within a 24 hours period.
Antonio Heard and Kayla Richard, both of Atlanta, were charged with petit larceny, conspiracy to commit a crime, attempt to commit larceny, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
According to authorities, Heard, Richard and two other suspects entered the Sprint store in the 1000 block of Goodman Road and stole money from the cash register.
Several hours later, the group hit two T Mobil stores in Memphis, then fled south across the stateline.
Once in Southaven, they hit another T Mobile store, which was located in the same shopping plaza as the store they hit the previous night. When officers arrived on the scene, all four took off.
Heard and Richard were both taken into custody, but the other two were able to escape.
So far they have not been captured.
