Wichita police posted photos of suspected shoplifters, including one with a large smile, who appear to be running from a north Wichita Wal-Mart.

The robbery occurred at the 5475 N. Meridian store last week, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page on Monday.

The thieves asked for an electronics case to be opened, then pushed the clerk down and stole two iPads from the case, according to the post. The suspects, in their late teens or early 20s, left in a dark, 4-door sedan with a temporary tag, according to police.

If you have any information about this crime, police ask that you contact Detective Davis at or 316-268-4496.
