Police said they are looking for five people after a mattress was used to conceal the theft of $43,000 worth of new cellphones from an East Texas Sam’s Club Sunday.

Tyler police said four women and a man loaded a mattress and other merchandise onto a flat cart to hide them from view while they cut the lock off a storage unit to access the phones.

Police said the women then hid the cellphones inside compartments of their clothing and walked out.

Security video shows four women and one man driving away in a dark SUV.

Tyler police asked anyone with information about this offense to call them at 903-531-1000 or Crime Stoppers at 903-597-2833 (CUFF).
