Dyson vacuums were stolen twice in three days from Bed Bath & Beyond at Promenade at Crocker Park, police reported.

The thefts happened on Nov. 5 and Nov. 8, 2015. According to police reports, a man and a woman were caught on surveillance video taking two vacuums from the store just before 5 p.m. on Nov. 5. In the Nov. 8 incident, employees followed suspects out of the store and was injured during an encounter with them after they said they stole vacuums.
