Police have arrested three suspects in a robbery at a Walmart store in Carbon County, but now they're after two men who got away.

The suspects in two cars led authorities on a chase that ended in Lehigh County on Monday.

A total of six people in those two cars were involved, said police, who chased one car into Laury's Station, Lehigh Co., and arrested the three people inside: Henry Clinton, Sabree Clinton, and Nyra Foster.

The three people in the other car got away, but police have identified two of the three as Jamal Mitchell, 32, and Donte Shaw, 21, both of Philadelphia.

All six suspects, police said, were involved in numerous thefts at Walmart and Sam's Club locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York and Maryland in the last three months. Officials estimated the group has stolen merchandise worth more than $190,000.

If you have information about the location of Mitchell or Shaw, call 911.

The men, police said, are considered dangerous and should not be approached. Anyone able to identify the third person should call Mahoning Twp. police at 570-386-2241.
