St. Johns County Sheriff's Office deputies called to the store on U.S. Highway 1 south at 4:45 a.m. were told that two men used force to steal two 32-inch and one 42-inch televisions.
Witnesses told deputies the men put the televisions in a shopping car and pushed it out the door. When a cashier yelled at the men to stop, another employee who was entering the store at the time approached one of the suspects.
The suspect with the cart then stopped on the sidewalk and ran back to the victim. The victim stated that as the suspect got within 5 feet of him, the suspect allegedly sprayed pepper spray in the victim's face.
They were last seen getting into a large white SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Suburban or GMC Yukon. The shorter suspect was wearing an "I Love Haters" ball cap.
Anyone with any information about the two suspects is asked to contact Detective Andrew Stoinoff at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-209-3982. You can also remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS (8477).
