Detroit police are seeking tips to find suspects wanted in several thefts reported at businesses in the city this month.

Investigators have connected two of the suspects to two incidents at a store in the 12700 block of Schaefer. In the first, about 8 p.m. May 6, a man “entered the business with who appears to be a disabled young male,” authorities said in a statement.

Surveillance footage released Wednesday appears to show the man directing the youth to part of the store. “A short time later, the young man returns with several boxes of candy/food items and runs out the door,” police said.

Officials believe the same pair stole items from the store a second time about 10 p.m. May 13.
