LUFKIN (KYTX) - Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a suspect captured on video leaving a Lufkin store with stolen merchandise.
A security camera at the entrance of the store captured video of the suspect coming and going just before 9:00 PM October 17, 2013. The video shows the suspect entering the store with sunglasses on his head and a white bag in his hand. Minutes later, the camera captured the suspect exiting the store with the sunglasses on his head and the bag in his hand but also with a pair of headphones around his neck.
Employees quickly determined that the suspect stole a pair of Phillips brand headphones but do not know what other merchandise was taken and they were unable to stop him before he fled the area.
The suspect is a tall, thin, black male with short hair and some facial hair. At the time of this crime, he was wearing a grey t-shirt, blue jeans, and light-colored tennis shoes, and he had a green bracelet on his left wrist.
Crime Stoppers chose to profile this theft as a warning to other would-be thieves. Thefts such as this typically are misdemeanor offenses but punishments can still be stiff, and prior convictions for any grade of theft can enhance the punishment to a State Jail Felony.
