HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Two people decided to take a swim. 

First, though, they had to take a swimming pool, swiping one from a local store in broad daylight. 

So instead of pool time, they're facing jail time - depending on how big a splash your tips to Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers can make. 

On surveillance photos, you see a man pushing a large box out of the Walmart on Sparkman Drive on April 15. There's a rather large swimming pool in that box. 

You also see a woman pushing some other pool parts out of the store. The two didn't pay for anything. They just loaded it and left. 

We're not talking about a wading pool or a kiddie pool here; this was one of those large above ground pools, with a large price tag to match.

They wound up loading the pool in the back of a silver convertible. 

You can help us pull the plug on their illegal summer swim, sinking them with one anonymous tip.

You can phone in your anonymous tip to 256-53-Crime. 

Or you can text or e-mail your tips. Go to waff.com, click Crime Stoppers, then hit the Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers link. 

There's a reward of up to $1,000.
