CASE #: 19-006679
On March 29, 2019 a white male suspect selected over $1,000 in merchandise at Walmart, located at 3200 Fort Henry Drive in Kingsport. The individual then went through the self-checkout lanes, made the appearance of checking out, but then left the store with the merchandise without actually paying for any of it.

This same suspect is believed to be involved in several other shoplifting incidents throughout the Tri-Cities region. The above incident was captured on store surveillance video, with a photo of the suspect, taken from that footage, included in this release.

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:
