Waynesboro Police seek public help in ID’g shoplifter


The Waynesboro Police Department is requesting assistance from the community to help identify an individual involved in substantial theft from a local business.

On Tuesday at 5:30 a.m., the suspect described as a white male possibly in his late 20s to early 30s entered Walmart, 116 Lucy Lane.  He loaded up a shopping cart with nearly $750 worth of merchandise.  The items he stole were a coffee machine, a fish tank, fish tank sand, a broom, two shirts, a car seat and a seven-piece bed set.

The suspect was in the store for approximately 30 minutes before he left.  He was confronted by a Walmart employee at the exit but refused to stop for her.  He then loaded his ill-gotten goods in a green SUV and left the parking lot.

Still images of the suspect and vehicle are attached.
