FLORENCE, Ala. – Police need help tracking down a theft suspect. The man was seen on surveillance filling up his shopping cart, but he didn’t quite make it out of the store.

Florence police said the suspect was seen wearing a red t-shirt and camouflage Alabama hat. According to investigators, he tried stealing several hundred dollars worth of merchandise.

The incident took place on July 5 at Walmart on Hough Road. As he was trying to leave, the greeter asked for a receipt and the man ran away.

According to investigators, the crime is still theft because he went past the cashiers. Hopefully these pictures will shed some light on who the man is.
