6 foot 10 inches should be easy to track down...

The second suspect wasn't quite as tall as first reports indicated: 6-foot-2 is the corrected height, according to an update from police.

The article states that the individuals were approx 5'10" and 6'2" with black hooded sweatshirts and dark jeans. With those descriptions, they might as well have included their astrology signs...they'd be equally as useful!
