Saline police are looking for three people — two men and a woman — who they believe stole more than $460 in saws and saw blades from a hardware store on Oct. 20.

Detective Don Lupi released a statement from police Monday morning with images from a security camera at the Junga’s Ace Hardware Store during a larceny on Oct. 20. According to police, the three people entered the store and committed the theft between 2:19 and 2:22 p.m.

Security camera footage showed one of the men removing Sawzall saw blades from a display and putting them in the woman’s bag. The other man took a boxed Rotozip saw and placed it inside his jacket. The three people left the store without paying for anything.

According to police, the total cost of the stolen items was $468.

The thefts were discovered when store employees were doing inventory and the security camera footage was reviewed following the discovery.

All of the suspects appear to be in their 20s and all three people are white.

Anyone with information on the theft is encouraged to call the Saline Police Department at 734-429-7911 and ask for Lupi or Officer Dennis Gruschow.

Looks to me like one of the guys has a grey beard. I call these saws and blades weapons.

Druggies on the run; that stuff will be fenced within 1 hour.

Check with Lowe's, Home Depot and local lumber/hardware's to see who is doing remodeling needing a saw...????

These perps probably needed a few sawbucks to satisfy their habit. I'm pretty sure that they're not stealing something to work with. The cutting edge video equipment will soon assist in the apprehension of these toothless criminals.

They're caught. Somebody will recognize the photos. Unless they are from far far away.

They got Minneapolis written all over them. Or maybe Williamsburg.

I don't know why you got voted down. I agree, meth and other drugs are behind this.

Dosen't look like the guy with the ball cap is in he's 20's more like 40's or 50's, hard to tell with video shot. Girl in the sweatshirt looks like she is sporting an Adidas brand logo on front? Dosen't look that they'll get away with this, hopefully they'll be caught.

Hmm judging by the clothing I would suggest looking in 1994.
