A witness told officers they saw the suspects jump into a maroon Toyota RAV4 SUV that was parked in the service area at the back of the mall. Surveillance video showed a group of people and an SUV matching the description given to police. The SUV had Georgia license plate CVV-8331, but investigators said the plate appears to be fictitious. Surveillance video showed the vehicle leaving Concord Mills and turning left onto Derita Road toward Charlotte.
