FORT MYERS, Fla.- Authorities are looking for two men who worked together to try and steal more than $800 in electronics from a south Fort Myers Target.

Shortly after 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, the two men walked into the Target store, located on the 13000 block of S. Tamiami Trial, and headed to the electronics section.

Within minutes, the men loaded up a cart full of electronics, including a television set, gaming devices, headphones and clothes and walked out the door.

When loss prevention officers followed the men, one of the suspects physically fought the employees before abandoning the items.

The men left the scene in what appeared to be a blue Ford Ranger.
