The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is seeking to identify three people in connection with shoplifting at two area stores.
Three males shoplifted from the Beverage Outlet and Golden Package stores in Martinez, according to a department news release.
A clerk chased the suspects into the lot of Golden Package store and one of them punched him in the face, the release states.
The three left the store in a small white 4-door passenger car, possibly a late 1990’s to early 2000’s Chevrolet Malibu, heading south on South Belair Road, according to the release.
Anyone with information can contact Investigator Jacob Dyer at (706) 541-2860.
