SUBJECT: K.P.D. Searching for Felony Shoplifter Who Concealed Loot in Suitcase
DATE: January 27, 2016
CASE #: 15-027448
On December 19, 2015 at approximately 6:30 AM, an unknown suspect shoplifted over $750 in merchandise from Wal-Mart, located at 2500 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. The suspect concealed the merchandise in a large wheeled suitcase, which he then rolled out the door. Among the stolen items inside the suitcase were power tools, a video baby monitor, motorcycle gloves, flashlights, makeup, lithium batteries, and fishing line.

The incident was captured on store surveillance video. The suspect appears to be a white male adult, and he fled the scene in what appears to be a red, compact, 4-door sedan with a sunroof. Several photographs of the suspect and his vehicle, taken from surveillance footage, have been included in this release.

Anyone who recognizes him or his vehicle, or who may have any additional information which may help with this investigation, is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
