MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant Police say the theft of nearly $1,200 in vacuum cleaners could be related to a theft days earlier from a different store.

Police responded Tuesday to the Kohl's Department Store on Proprieter's Place, according to an incident report.

Store employees told police two men and a woman entered the store and took two Dyson vacuums with a combined value of $1.199.98, the report states.

Police say the store provided surveillance video. They also say the three people may have been involved in a prior shoplifting case on Aug. 25 at the Long Grove Road Target store in Mount Pleasant, the report states.

In that incident, store employees told police two men entered the store and removed a Dyson tower fan and a Dayson vacuum. The combined value of those items was $949.98, the report states. Employees told police a woman helped the two men load the items into the back of a vehicle that was believed to be a silver Ford sedan, possibly a Ford Fusion.

Store personnel did provide surveillance footage of the incident to investigators, the report states.

Police have not yet released surveillance footage from either incident.

Anyone with information on the crimes should contact Mount Pleasant Police at 843-884-4176.
