Bel Air police received a call at approximately 3 p.m. from someone who had watched three people allegedly commit a theft at Dick’s Sporting Goods in White Marsh, according to the department’s post on its Facebook page. The caller told police they followed the suspected thieves as they drove to Dick’s Sporting Goods on West MacPhail Road in Bel Air.
The suspects attempted to run off as Bel Air police officers arrived.
