CRIME STOPPERS CASE No. 1245
On Wednesday, Oct. 31, two men entered the Stop and Shop at 1827 W. 13th. A third man waited in the truck he had backed up to the business. One of the men showed a badge hanging on a chain from his neck. It resembled a Wichita Police Department badge, and he identified himself as a police officer. He told the employee that they were there to seize the arcade games at the rear of the store because they were illegal. The employee challenged the suspects on their claim to be police officers. The employee called 911 as the suspects loaded the truck. The suspects successfully loaded two of the games and drove off. Loss is valued at over $10,000.

The suspect wearing the badge is a white male, 5-foot-10, 190 pounds with brown hair. He was wearing a white shirt and blue jeans. The other suspect also was a white male of average height and build. He was wearing a brown plaid shirt and blue jeans. The person driving the truck wasn't seen.
