A search is over for an individual who reportedly jumped into Five Mile Pond in Springfield to escape police.
Authorities came up empty-handed after the suspected Walmart shoplifter jumped in on Tuesday.
Springfield police and firefighters spent about two hours looking and got help from a state police helicopter, but officials say this was not a rescue operation.
A second suspect, a juvenile, was reportedly arrested.
A police spokesman tells WHYN News that they believe they know who they are looking for and will issue a criminal complaint at some point today.
