Surveillance cameras at the Foot Locker in Edgewater Mall took pictures of three women police say are sought in a felony shoplifting investigation.

Biloxi police released their pictures Wednesday, asking that anyone who recognizes them give a tip.

The women allegedly stole items from the store about 4 p.m. May 24, Biloxi Police Investigator Steve Kelly said.

One woman wore a Nike shirt and blue jeans with holes on the front legs of the pants, Kelly said. One wore a multi-colored shirt, black pants and a blue jean-style jacket. The other wore a dark blue shirt and pants.

No details were released on items taken. The retail chain store sells brand-name athletic shoes, clothes and accessories.
