Bold robbers steal large-screen TVs from Collinsville Walmart

News-DemocratMay 17, 2013 

Police are searching for men who stole a pair of large-screen televisions early Friday from the Walmart store in Collinsville.

According to police reports, two men walked into the store at about 3:20 a.m. They each grabbed a TV and walked out of the store without paying. They got into a car where another man was waiting and fled the scene. The vehicle was described as a blue 1986 Chevrolet station wagon with license plate number R309361.

The description of the suspects' vehicle matches a car that police said was used in a similar robbery May 6 at the Best Buy electronics store in Fairview Heights.
