Police have issued arrest warrants for three people in connection with a shoplifting scheme in both Austell and Smyrna.

Anthonique La’armon Finley, Andrea Deaveon Reese and Antonio Fambro have each been accused of stealing bags of ink cartridges from office supply chains around Cobb.

Investigators say Finley bolted from an Austell Office Max on April 12 with a trash bag containing 44 ink cartridges. According to arrest warrants, the stolen ink had a value upwards of $2,600.

Police say Reese was involved in the same incident, as well as an earlier one in Smyrna. Investigators say Reese stuffed 24 ink cartridges into a black trash bag before running past the pay counters at an Office Depot off Cobb Parkway on April 1.

According to police, Fambro was also involved in the Smyrna heist.

Arrest warrants for the three indicate each has been associated with similar incidents in the past. Police say Finley has been identified in three related thefts in McDonough, Atlanta and near Georgia Tech, while Reese has been involved with one similar incident in Smyrna; Fambro has been associated with two related thefts in Woodstock and Atlanta.

Finley and Fambro have each been charged with one count of theft by shoplifting and one count of racketeering, while Reese has been charged with two counts of theft by shoplifting and one count of racketeering.
