MCSO looking for two individuals suspected of stealing Samsung smartphone from AT&T store

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man and woman who are suspected of distracting an employee and stealing a smartphone from a local AT&T store.

According to MCSO, on July 25, 2022, the two individuals (pictured below) stopped by the AT&T store located on SW 93rd Court in Ocala. Once inside the store, the female suspect attempted to trade in a phone with no value and began arguing with an employee.
