A Bellevue couple is wanted on several charges after an incident at the Blair Walmart in March.
Derick W. Fuller, 24, is charged with robbery, a Class 2 felony; intentional child abuse-no injury, a Class 3A felony; terroristic threats, a Class 3A felony; and flight to avoid arrest, a Class 4 felony.
Chadra R. Fader, 28, is charged with intentional child abuse-no injury, flight to avoid arrest and theft by unlawful taking, $0-$500, a Class 2 misdemeanor.
Warrants for Fuller and Fader were issued April 12.
According to an arrest affidavit, Blair police were dispatched to Walmart, 1882 Holly St., at approximately 1:40 p.m. March 19 for a shoplifting in progress. Dispatch informed the officers the suspect vehicle was a dark gray four-door Ford Fusion.
As officers arrived, they located the vehicle traveling west on Holly Street. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, which headed south on 19th Street, cutting off traffic and nearly caused an accident. The vehicle continued south at a high rate of speed and weaving in and out of traffic.
Officers were able to close in at the roundabout. However, as the car exited the roundabout, it reached speeds of 100 mph. The attempted traffic stop was discontinued.
Police were able to identify two suspects — Fuller and Fader — from surveillance video. A third suspect has not yet been identified, according to the report.
Surveillance video showed Fader, Fuller and their 8-year-old daughter enter the store and grab a cart. The third suspect — a man — followed the couple into the store.
Fader and Fuller are seen taking various DVDs and placing them in the cart behind the child. They then walked into an aisle in the toy section.
Fuller walked back to the DVD display two more times and picked up two more DVDs and a CD. All three suspects then left store without paying for the items.
Fuller then returned to the store and walked back to the DVD section, where he stopped and talked to the store manager. During the confrontation, Fuller appeared agitated and pointed at the manager.
“If you're going to watch me, I'll grab them in front of you,” Fuller allegedly said.
Fuller then grabbed five more DVDs and walked toward the front of the store. He also allegedly threatened the manager, according to the affidavit.
