Three men and one woman are behind bars because of a theft at Wal-Mart on Lawrence Road Friday morning.
Officers noticed a guy taking things out of a van near 10th and Van Buren.
They thought it was suspicious and questioned the suspects.
At least one suspect took off running and the others were still in the van.
Officers eventually found the guy who ran.
One of the officers believed the items came from Wal-Mart.
He went there and found out that the items had been shoplifted.
The van was seen on surveillance video by a fire door at Wal-Mart.
The fire alarm went off but employees were not aware of the suspect van in the area until they reviewed security video.
