The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who stole two radio-controlled cars — valued at $500 each — from a hobby store on Martin Way East.
The suspects entered RC Hobbies at 7837 Martin Way E. on Monday, spent five minutes in the store asking questions, then grabbed the radio-controlled cars and ran off. As they fled, they nearly struck a store employee with their SUV, which was thought to be a Chevy Tahoe.
The vehicle has a hood dent on the driver’s side and a black dot pattern on the passenger side, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 360-786-5500.
