The St. Lawrence County Sheriffs Office and the Massena Police Department are conducting a joint investigation of larcenies that occurred Monday at the Potsdam and Massena Walmart stores.
Police said that at approximately 6:45 p.m., three individuals - one male and two females - entered the Massena Walmart and stole several tablets valued at more than $4,000 from the electronics department and exited the store. They left in a light-colored Chevrolet/GMC suburban.
At approximately 7:50 p.m. the same three individuals entered the Potsdam Walmart where they stole numerous cellular phones valued at more than $20,000 from the electronics division and then left the store.
Police said the larcenies may be associated with a similar larceny that occurred last Thursday at the Malone Walmart, where three individuals stole several electronic tablets valued at more than $4,000.
The sheriffs department is asking anyone with information to call the Detective Division at 379-2360.
