Las Cruces Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that helps identify a couple suspected of shoplifting a large amount of denim from the Sears department store at the Mesilla Valley Mall.

This past Sunday just before 6 p.m., a young man and woman entered the department store, loaded several pair of Levi’s denim jeans into a large duffel bag and then left the store without paying for the merchandise. The couple is suspected of stealing about 30 pair of Levi’s jeans, with an estimated value of $2,000. The couple was last seen leaving the parking lot in a red Volkswagen Jetta. Investigators have reason to believe the couple may reside in Alamogordo, or possibly frequent that city.

Anyone with information that can help identify the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) or send a tip by text message to CRIMES (274637), keyword LCTIPS.
