ACWORTH, Ga -- Police believe they may have stopped a string of thefts when they arrested some pretty clever shoplifters. Acworth Police said they had all the tools, including one they have never seen before.
It all came about because of a very observant retired Cobb County Police officer. He noticed a man and woman inside the Best Buy on Cobb Parkway in Acworth who looked suspicious.
Captain Mark Cheatham said the retired police officer followed the couple into the parking lot where they got into a van with a driver. "He followed them outside and then followed them in their car and called police," Capt. Cheatham said.
