The Aiken Department of Public Safety will seek arrest warrants for three men who allegedly shoplifted from a Whiskey Road store.


The incident was reported at Hobby Lobby on Whiskey Road on Jan. 3, according to an incident report.


Two suspects entered the store and concealed needlework items, then left the store without paying for them. A third suspect entered the store moments later and returned the items for a refund in the form of a gift card for $125.


The suspects have been identified from an ongoing investigation by Hobby Lobby loss prevention in which the same suspects are reportedly shoplifting items and returning them for gift cards.


The store made the cards “hot” so they could not be used by the suspects, according to the report.
