Crime Stoppers August 6: Assault at beauty supply store; Pawn shop thefts

Suspects in beauty supply store thefts


Detectives need your help identifying three suspects, two women and a man, wanted for stealing items from Ulta Beauty on Highway 280 July 25. Pictures of the suspects are posted to the right of this story.

They stole more than $1,000 worth of merchandise and{}pushed store employees to escape.

"They actually physically assaulted two of the employees," said Birmingham Detective Pat Green.

The suspects left in a white Equinox with tag number 3-A-3-5-V-2-6.

"The tag actually came back to a black female from the Montgomery area named Avita Jarret,"{}said Green. "She's a person of interest in this case."

If you have any information on Jarret or the suspects, contact Crime Stoppers immediately.


Authorities also need your help locating three suspects wanted for stealing approximately $20,000 worth of lawn equipment from Cash America Pawn on the 1400 block of Forestdale Blvd. June 4 and June 10.

A picture of the vehicle they were in is posted to the right of this story.

"The first night, the suspects cut a hole in the fence close to one of the posts, snuck in, and stole what appears to be a pressure washer and a John Deere riding lawn mower," said Jefferson County Sgt. Brian Allison.

Six days later, they came back and cut the fence's lock. They made two trips June 10.

"We're really going to rely on the publics help for this one," added Sgt. Allison. "This is a situation where we have a few of the puzzle pieces, but we don't have a majority of them."
