All they wanted to do was have a picnic, now they've ended up on CrimeStoppers.
Two suspects are wanted by Jonesboro police for cashing in a counterfeit check for groceries, and keeping the change: over $500 worth.
At a Jonesboro Wal-Mart on the 4th of July, the two suspects came in to the store to pick up some groceries. The only problem, they are going to cash a counterfeit check from J.C. Penny made out for just over $800.
Among the $270 worth of groceries that were purchased were ribs, baked beans, paper plates, napkins, drinks, and bug repellant.
If you know who the couple is, call CrimeStoppers, 935-STOP or toll free, 888-566-STOP.
If your tip turns into an arrest, a check could be headed your way.
