State police are looking for a man and woman who stole about $30,000 from several Wal-Mart stores.

Fayette County Crimestoppers is looking for information leading to the arrests of a man and woman wanted for stealing about $30,000 worth of merchandise from three Wal-Mart stores, state police at Uniontown said.

According to Trooper Stefani A. Plume, the man, who wears a fake beard to mask his identity, loosens security locks on electronic equipment cases and places the merchandise in a bag or container. The woman acts as a lookout while he steals the items.

Wal-Mart officials told Plume that the two have stolen approximately $30,000 worth of merchandise.

Plume said the man is a suspect in a theft incident at the Connellsville Wal-Mart. According to the store's loss prevention department, he and the woman committed similar crimes at the Cranberry Township and Irwin stores.

Anyone with information on the couple is asked to contact Fayette County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-404-TIPS or crimestoppersfayette@gmail.com.
