Kinston Police are looking for three people who they say tried to steal a crossbow from a sporting goods shop.
Police say, in late October, two men and a woman entered the Neuse Sports Shop in Kinston and walked out with a crossbow, worth a reported $1200.
Investigators said the trio also took a jacket.
When employees approached the suspected thieves, they dropped the bow and drove off in a green Honda.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call Kinston Police.
