Lufkin Crime Stoppers searching for TV theft suspect

Posted: Updated:

Crime Stoppers press release:

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a suspect involved in the theft of merchandise from a Lufkin-area Walmart.

According to the store's loss prevention employee, the suspect entered the store just before noon on December 17, 2012, and pushed an empty shopping cart to the electronics department.  The store`s security video shows that the suspect spent a few moments browsing before selecting a forty-six-inch Sanyo brand LCD 1080p HD television, loaded it into the shopping cart, and then pushing the cart and TV out of the store without paying.

From the security video, you can see that the suspect is a white male who, at the time of the theft, had dark and short-cut hair and thin facial hair.  He wore a grey hooded sweat shirt, blue t-shirt, black pants, and black shoes.

Before store employees reacted to the theft, the suspect loaded the television into a vehicle and fled the area.  A witness described the suspect`s vehicle as a silver sports utility vehicle, possibly a Toyota 4Runner.
