Reed contacted Deputy Nicole Nealy and she drove past the store. Nealy reported she saw the suspects vehicle with the two suspects standing beside it. She then advised dispatch that the two suspects who were expected of shoplifting started walking south and the other two subjects started walking north.

After returning the suspects to the store and watching the surveillance video, both James McCullom and 24-year-old Austin Moore of De Queen were taken into custody and charged with shoplifting.
