Three males and a female are wanted for questioning in the theft of a pickup truck stolen from a beachfront gas station.

Police have released surveillance pictures that show some of the suspects.

Three of them are wanted in the grand larceny of a Toyota pickup truck stolen about 2:28 a.m. Dec. 26 from the Shell gas station at Beach Boulevard and Reynoir Street, Det. Tom Lamb said.

The stolen vehicle has been recovered, but police are trying to identify the suspects, Lamb said.

It’s unclear if the suspects are teens or young adults.

Two males and a female were involved in the theft but a third male was seen with them in the store, Lamb said.

The group apparently reached the gas station in a newer-model Chevrolet or Chrysler four-door car, he said. Three of them went in the store and one male got in a pickup and drove off, to its owner’s surprise.

Anyone with information about the theft or the suspects is asked to call the Biloxi Police Department at 228-392-0641 or the department’s criminal investigations division at 228-435-6112.

Or tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898 or visit its website at mscoastcrimestoppers.com.
