WINTER HAVEN, FL (WFLA) -

Investigators with the Winter Haven Police Department are on the lookout for three suspects who stole a vehicle from a convenience store early Saturday morning.

The incident occurred at approximately 12:45 a.m. at the Circle K location on 1st St. South.

According to a Winter Haven Police Department report the victim pulled into the parking lot in her 2012 Chevrolet Impala and went inside to pick up a few items. The unidentified woman left her nine-year-old daughter in the backseat of the vehicle with the engine running.

The first suspect - described as a black male with a heavy build – pulls a four pack of beer from the cooler and hands it to another one of the suspects for purchase. That suspect departs the store and heads into the parking lot.

The owner of the Impala gets in line behind the other two men as they go to buy the beer.

The second suspect is described as a black male with a very thin build; the third suspect is also a black male with a muscular build.

After the woman makes her purchase she exits just in time to see her daughter getting out of the car as the three suspects get in. The child was not hurt.

Investigators say the stolen Impala was last seen leaving the parking lot heading north on First St. South.

Suspect one was wearing a black t-shirt, black shorts and black slides with socks.

Suspect two was wearing a blue tank top, sagging blue jean shorts, a hat with a black and white pattern and black slides with socks.

Suspect three was wearing a gray tank top, blue jean shorts and orange sneakers.

If you have any about this incident or the identity of any of the suspects call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-8477.
