MARIETTA, Ga. -- Two men were arrested for participating in what Marietta police call "an organized shoplifting ring."
Christopher Higgins and John Stiltz, both 31, were taken into custody after reportedly shoplifting from the Walmart in the 1700 block of Cobb Parkway.
Stiltz was arrested Oct. 15 while driving the suspected getaway car, a green Volkswagen Jetta, according to Marietta police spokesman David Baldwin. Higgins was taken into custody Oct. 21 inside the Target in the 2200 block of Cobb Parkway.
Baldwin said the two suspects are accused of shoplifting from both the Walmart and Target several times between Oct. 11 and 15, and pawning the stolen items at area pawn shops.
Both suspects have been charged with shoplifting and theft by deception. Additional charges are possible.
