SUBJECT: K.P.D. Requesting Assistance in Identifying Wal-Mart Felony Shoplifter
DATE: January 5, 2017
CASE #: 16-028005
On December 27, 2016 at approximately 4:00 AM, an unidentified white male suspect shoplifted a felonious amount of merchandise from Wal-Mart, located at 2500 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. The suspect selected over $1,200 in merchandise and proceeded to surreptitiously leave the store through a fire exit with no attempt to pay for the items.

The suspect was wearing long baggy shorts, a green and gray plaid shirt over what appears to be a hooded sweatshirt, and white high-top athletic shoes. He was captured on store surveillance cameras, and photos taken from that footage have been included in this release. A clip of the actual footage has been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below:

Anyone who recognizes him 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.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
