Two wanted men are now in custody after police say they were a part of a group, who was involved in a shoplifting incident in Delaware. 

The Milford Police Department says on February 19, officers responded to the Walmart, on N DuPont Boulevard, for a reported shoplifting and fraudulent return, in Milford. Police say 29- year-old Allen Burton, of Felton, stole merchandise valued under $1,500 from the store.
 
According to the report, 23-year-old Erika Coleman, of Harrington, and 31-year-old Ricki Wintjen, of Harrington, then returned some of the stolen items and received cash. Officers report that another individual identified as 32-year-old Johnathan Nason, of Bridgeville, also return the rest of the stolen items. Warrants were issued for all four individuals. 

Milford PD says on March 1, Nason and Coleman turned themselves in to the Milford Police Department. They were charged with theft by false pretense under $1,500 and conspiracy third degree. Nason and Coleman were released on $1,000 unsecured bail and issued a no contact order with Walmart.
