Every Friday, I'm always checking the Tyler Police Department's Facebook page for their #FindEmFriday series of posts where they share information and photos of the wanted criminals from all across the city.

This week we have several folks who are wanted for various crimes, mostly shoplifting or using someone's debit or credit card without permission. The weird thing about it is, all of these folks being put on blast are COUPLES.... I guess its true what they say: The couple that commits crimes together will stay together. Let's take a look:


 

LOTTERY LOOTERS

Tyler PD don't know if these two are really a couple or siblings but they went into a Valero on South Broadway and while the guy distracted the cashier, the woman went into the bathroom and allegedly stole a roll of lottery tickets and "concealed them on her person". The crazy thing that these morons didn't think about was that the Lottery will VOID all those tickets once they are reported missing so they will end up with NOTHING but criminal charges.

BABY FORMULA HUSTLERS

Tyler PD originally thought this couple may have been a desperate family stealing baby formula for themselves but apparently they have a "Baby Formula" racket going on because they have been spotted at various locations on different days across the city stealing formula and driving off in a black GMC Yukon.

PHONY FLOSSERS

And finally, Tyler PD are looking for this couple who used other people’s debit and credit cards to “purchase” all stuff at Wal-Mart on 31 E. and at Home Depot.

If you have any information on these folks, contact Tyler-Smith County Crime Stoppers at 903-597-2833.
