St. Paul police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a few individuals who are suspected to be involved in looting stores in the city in late May.

The St. Paul Police Department department tweeted photos of the suspects this week. One tweet shows the pair breaking into a Cub Liquor store, located in the Sun Ray Shopping Center, on May 28.

A tweet shared Tuesday includes photos of a male suspect who allegedly broke into an auto parts store and nail salon, as well as a woman who is suspected of stealing from a Speedway. 

The department is asking anyone with information to email SPPD-CUITF@ci.stpaul.mn.us or call 651-266-5900.

For weeks, the police department has been tweeting photos of suspected looters who were involved in the riots following the police killing of George Floyd. And on Tuesday, officials said they've identified, located and arrested many of the suspects thanks to the public's help. 

The city’s Planning and Economic Development Department said the riots led to an estimated $73 million in property damage and $8.8 million in loss of inventory and other assets. Around 330 St. Paul businesses were affected.
