SEBASTIAN, Florida – On Sunday, the Sebastian Police Department arrested 2 people for trying to steal approximately $497 worth of items from Reel’em In Bait & Tackle.

Jim Thompson, 42, and Nadia C. Jordan, 28, went into the store to shop around. However, the store owner noticed that Jordan was placing items in her purse.
