Bibb County deputies need help identifying suspects and locating a car possibly used in the Jan. 2 theft of a Children’s Miracle Network donation box from the Harrison Road Wal-Mart.

A witness saw two men wearing black ski masks walk into the store just before 2 a.m., pick up the box and leave. They were last seen in the parking lot area in a tan or gold Ford Taurus. The car’s license plate was obscured by a piece of cloth or a T-shirt, according to a news release.

The donation box contained an undisclosed amount of cash.

One of the suspects is described as being a 5-foot, 7-inch tall black man with a dark complexion who was wearing blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a blue or black jacket. The second suspect is a 6-foot, 2-inch tall black man with a light complexion who was wearing blue pants, a blue long-sleeve shirt and blue tennis shoes, according to the release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
