KPD Asking Community to Indentify Thieves

KPD needs help identifying thieves.

The Killeen Police Department was contacted by an employee of the Hobby Lobby, located at 2002 E. Central Texas Expressway, on February 4, 2015, and advised them that the two people pictured were inside the store on January 24, 2015, and stole several items as well as short changed the cashier, then fled the store.

The employee told officers that the black male and black female approached the cashier to purchase a small ceramic pot. The male then asked the cashier to break a $100 bill, which they did.  The male then created confusion when he began asking for change from the original amount he was given, the cashier not realizing it, gave the male an extra $100.  The female then dropped the ceramic pot to cause a diversion so that she could leave the store with items she never intended to purchase.  The male followed shortly afterwards.

Detectives are asking anyone who can identify the thieves in this photo to please contact Crime Stoppers at 526-TIPS (8477) or go online anonymously at or text BELLCO anonymously along with the tip to 274637.  Text HELP to 274637 for help with the tip or text STOP to 274637 to stop the tip.  Message and Data Rates may apply.  All information is confidential and if your tip leads to the arrest of the suspects responsible for this crime, you could be eligible to receive up to $1,000 in cash.
