(KSEE) Police in Fresno, California are looking for two thieves who stole from a Target store, then called the store to complain about being confronted by security.

Police say 43-year-old Derek Anthony and 35-year old Marie Guazon were attempting to steal printer ink cartridges from the Target when they were stopped by security guards.

A scuffle ensued, before Anthony is seen on security video revealing a handgun in his waist band.

Once security officers see the gun, they allow the two to leave the store.

Police say the two fled in a silver Mercedes SUV, then stole from yet another Target across town.

Then surprisingly, Anthony called the store to complain about how they were treated. Security saved the suspect’s phone number and gave it to police, who then traced the it back to the suspects.

“We usually don’t get cases where the person who robbed the store calls back and then asked to speak to store security where they complain about the fact that they were stopped,” says Fresno Police Sgt. Mark Hudson.
