Corpus Christi Police Detectives have released camera surveillance images of a couple that they believe stole a television from a Wal Mart, located at 3829 Interstate 69, on January 13.

Camera surveillance images obtained from the store show a Hispanic male walk into the store through the front entrance wearing a blue Wal Mart vest and tan pants in an attempt to look like a store employee.

A female wearing a black and green striped top and blue jeans entered the store through the garden section.

The female posed as a customer while the male, dressed as an employee, got a dolly from the back storage area of the store and then loaded up a 60 inch Samsung LED television.  They both walked out the front of the  store without paying for the merchandise.

The stolen television was valued at nearly $1,000.

The couple got into a silver Dodge four door truck that was missing the front right fender.
