Tempe Police are asking for assistance in identifying the two listed suspects in the photos below that were seen in a stolen vehicle near Price and Southern Ave Tempe. The vehicle was taken during a residential burglary near the same location.
Between July 22, 2012 and July 23, 2012, suspects unlawfully entered the rear door of a residence located in the area of Price and Southern in Tempe. The suspects stole the victim’s 35” TV, and a Mercury Marquis from the garage. On July 23, 2012 the stolen vehicle was seen at Price Rd and Southern Ave with the two suspects inside.
The suspects were followed to the shopping plaza located at Southern Ave. and McClintock Dr. in Tempe, where both suspects entered a convenience store to purchase cigarettes (please see attached surveillance photos).
The suspects then drove the vehicle into an alley where they lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a wall. No citizens were injured in the crash. The suspects fled on foot as police arrived on scene and managed to escape capture, and both remain outstanding.
Driver of the stolen vehicle, white male, 20’s, short dark hair, short beard & mustache, wearing dark green shirt, blue jeans, and sunglasses or prescription transition glasses.
