The Southpoint area of Spotsylvania a flurry of police activity Sunday afternoon as authorities pursue three shoplifters who ran from the Walmart. 
One woman was taken into custody in the store and the other suspects ran toward the woods near American Family Fitness. 
Captain Mike Harvey with the Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office says two of the women involved were caught a short time later. A deputy chasing the lone man in the area radioed requesting water. He was found about 15 minutes later, unconscious, and apparently suffering from heat stroke.
Authorities say state police came in to help find the final man that had run into the woods. A group of people that were camping in the woods told officers the direction the suspect had run and the easiest way into and out of the woods. Harvey says they are grateful for the help and that citizen involvement makes their crime fighting more effective.
All four of the suspects are jailed and face felony charges.
