Back To Front Page


CVS is reporting the theft of razors on Tuesday by a pair of shoplifters, Chesterton Police said.

According to police, video surveillance footage shows that at 9:06 p.m. two male subjects entered the store and walked to the shaving aisle, where one of them pulled out a large garbage bag. Two minutes later they left the store, one of them walking calmly, the other “running through the exit carrying a large black trash bag that was bulging as if it was full.”

CVS subsequently determined that the pair had stolen approximately 40 packs of razors: $881.24 worth of eight-count Gillette razors and $289.92 worth of 12-count Gillette razors, for a total of $1,171.76 of stolen merchandise.

The suspects then entered a gray Chevrolet SUV with Illinois registration, fled the scene at a high rate of speed, and were last seen northbound on Ind. 49.

One of the suspects was described as a Hispanic male in his mid-thirties, with a thick build and short black hair, wearing a gray tee-shirt, blue jeans, and white shoes. The other suspect was a white male in his thirties, tall and thin, wearing camouflage shorts, a tee-shirt, and a baseball cap worn backwards.

The incident has been referred to the Investigations Division.
