Investigators are asking the public's help identifying three people who broke into a car in the Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle parking lot last month.
Surveillance video taken from cameras in the parking lot shows three people opening unlocked car doors and taking several "items of value" out of the vehicles at about 8 a.m. on May 23, according to a Columbus Police Department press release. Authorities released footage of the surveillance with the release.
One suspect is wearing a red Nike tank top in the video. A second suspect is wearing a camo shirt with the number 70 on the back and writing on the front. A third is wearing a blue shirt.
"Someone knows who these people are," CPD Chief Fred Shelton said in the release. "They took items worth several hundred dollars. The car was not locked, but the fact they entered it and stole items without permission is the same as breaking into the car. They will be charged with the same crime just as if they had broken the glass and taken the items."
Anyone with information on the incident or the suspects' identities is asked to call Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
