Police arrest 3 suspects after Best Buy shoplifting

ACWORTH, Ga. -

The Acworth Police Department is investigating a shoplifting incident in Cobb County that led to the arrest of three people.

According to a police report, the incident happened at the Best Buy on Cobb Parkway Thursday.

A retired Cobb County police officer spotted a man and woman acting suspicious in the store, then followed their silver Dodge van which had no tag.

“That vehicle then proceeded southbound on Highway 41 and later down the road he then observed a tag was displayed on it,” said Captain Mark Cheatham with the Acworth Police Department. The vehicle displayed a state issued tag from Illinois.

The retired officer called police and they stopped the van at a nearby Chevron gas station. Police confiscated $7,000 in cash and $1,700 of stolen electronics. Police say they also discovered tools, used by stores such as Best Buy, to remove merchandise from their plastic containers and a jamming device to stop the alarm from going off when someone walks out with stolen items.

Three suspects with Canadian passports were arrested. Krzysztof Dolonski, 39, Marzena Waskowska, 46, and Jan Jodlowski, 51, face multiple charges including shoplifting and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.

Police found an electronic mechanism in the van's console, which, when activated, would conceal the license plate.

Police say the Illinois plate is valid; leading them to suspect the trio was on a cross county crime spree.
