Two people were arrested over the weekend after they attempted to leave a Sturgis business without paying for more than $2,300 worth of merchandise.
Sturgis police said the two suspects shortly before midnight Sunday tried to leave the Wal-Mart store on South Centerville Road through a side door with a cart full of electronics and other high-priced items, police said.
Officers were called to the store by employees who noticed the suspects acting in a suspicious manner.
The suspects were taken to the St. Joseph County Jail. Information regarding their names, ages and residences was not included in a department media release.
