WELSH, LA (KPLC) -

A man and woman are wanted in connection with an attempted theft at a Welsh convenience store Monday night, authorities said.

Det. Aaron Istre with the Welsh Police Department said a man entered Skip's 90 One-Stop around 8 p.m. and told an employee he was delivering some parts for the store's gas pumps.

The suspect left the store after the clerk said he could not open the safe to give him the money for the parts, Istre said.

"The suspect then obtained contact information for the assistant manager and the number to the store," Istre said.

The suspect and a woman left the store in a white SUV.

Istre said a short time later, an unidentified woman called the store claiming to be the assistant manager.

"She (poised) as the assistant manager and called to say she was approving the payment," Istre said.

The male suspect returned to the store for the money but the clerk again refused.

"We believe he was trying to scam them by pretending to be a delivery man," Istre said. "We want the public to be on the lookout for that type of scam. Most likely they will try to hit stores in communities nearby."

Istre said the suspects are facing conspiracy to commit theft charges.

"We do not believe they are local. No one at the convenience store had ever seen them before," Istre said.

Anyone who has any information on the incident or who can identify the suspects or the vehicle is asked to contact Welsh police at 337-734-2626.
