MIDLAND - Midland Crimestoppers need your help identifying two theft suspects.

Back on January 23, a Coca-Cola employee arrived at the Family Dollar on Illinois Avenue in Midland to make a delivery.

After the employee entered the store, he laid his company laptop computer down while he was attending to his business.

A short time later, a white male and female entered the store and took the computer.

They both walked around the store and the male attempted to hide the computer in his coat.

We're told he even tried to log on to the computer.

The male and female eventually checked out at the store and left with the computer.

The suspects are described as a white female wearing a bright green jacket, black pants and has blonde hair. The male was wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans. We're told he had short black hair with blonde highlights.
