A $1,000 reward was offered for information that leads to an arrest in this case

Two men stole $4,000 worth of flea medication from a dog wash store in the South Park area of San Diego, confirmed the authorities.

It happened at the 2000 block of 30th Street in South Park on July 3. San Diego police said two men and a woman spoke with several employees while they cased the inside of the business. They all left without buying anything.

Later that evening, the same two men returned to the business with different outfits around 10:50 p.m. One of the suspects threw a rock, shattering the front glass door, and they both ran inside.

The men stole about 46 boxes of Advantix and Comfortis flea medication, with a total value of more than $4,000, according to police.

After grabbing the medication, the men left the shop and fled in a getaway vehicle driven by an unknown suspect. In the surveillance video, the vehicle appeared to be a silver-colored Toyota Rav-4.

Police described the suspects as a 20 to 30-year-old man with a medium build and a man in his mid 20's with a thin build. They were also looking for a person of interest, described as a 20 to 30-year-old woman with a medium build.

San Diego County Crime Stoppers and SDPD investigators have asked the public to help identify and locate the suspects.
