DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — Police say two men accused of stealing 39 iPads from a Georgia Wal-Mart could be part of a larger crime ring. Last week a couple was accused of stealing 33 iPads valued at more than $15,000 at another Wal-Mart store.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution ( reports two men stole iPads from a Wal-Mart in Dallas by hiding them inside a file cabinet box, purchasing the box and walking out. Officials didn't realize the iPads were missing until later.

Investigators hope surveillance video will help identify the pair.

On April 14, a man and woman hid 33 stolen iPads inside a plastic storage tote and walked out of a Covington Wal-Mart. Police used surveillance video to catch them.

Investigators aren't sure if the same suspects are involved in both thefts.
