The Booneville Police Department provides security for the annual Black Friday rush at the Booneville’s Walmart.

Unfortunately following last Friday’s contracted duty, the BPD opened an investigation into the theft of three iPads from the store.

BPD Chief Al Brown said an asset protection official with the company reported three empty iPad boxes were discovered in the store’s hardware department and a study of surveillance footage resulted in a man and woman being identified as suspects in the case.

Brown loaded still images of the two on the BPD Facebook page and received numerous tips as to the pair’s identity and paperwork was submitted to a 15th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney late last week.
