Authorities seek Oglethorpe Mall shoplifting suspects

Crime & Safety

Detectives are still looking for help identifying suspects in two shoplifting cases that occurred at Oglethorpe Mall.

According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), one person has been arrested so far.

On Feb. 9, officers responded to a DSW in the mall after an employee discovered that five pairs of shoes were stolen.

One woman, Lakytra Garnder, has been arrested in the shoplifting case. SPD on Tuesday said she turned herself in.

Two men and one woman are still being sought in connection to the case. 

One female was described as light-skinned, around 120-130 lbs., 5-foot-5 and had waist-length black hair with a blue streak in it. 

One male was described as light-skinned, about 200 lbs., 6-foot-2, and had a short beard, mustache and short hair in braids. He was wearing a gray hooded jacket, sweat pants and black shoes at the time of the incident.

The second male was described as light-skinned, 170-180 lbs., 5-foot-11, and had a short beard and possible gold teeth. At the time, he was wearing a gray hooded Tommy Hilfiger jacket with the word “City” on it, blue jeans and blue shoes.

SPD is also looking for a man accused of stealing an iPhone XR from an AT&T at the mall on Feb. 11. They say the incident appears to have occurred between 8:44 p.m. and 9:08 p.m. that day.

The suspect has been described as a young, heavy-set black male who is around 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11 and had short hair with faded sides. 

At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black hoodie, white tank top, black pants, and white and black Nike Jordans. He was possibly traveling in a gold sedan with Tennessee plates.

Anyone with information on either case should contact SPD Southside Precinct detectives at (912) 351-3403. Information can also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
