Caught on Cam: Man attempts to steal electronics from Target

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - An attempted theft at Target has Odessa Crime Stoppers looking for the criminal responsible.
           
Back on April 27, a man walks into Target, fills up his basket with electronics, and tries to walk out the door.

Luckily, the asset protection staff were able to get the items back, but the suspect still broke the law. That's where you come in.

The items include a speaker, Polaroid snap cameras, SD cards, a DVD player, a Dyson floor fan, and a Dyson vacuum. Together, the items total $1,458.

The suspect then walks to the front of the store, already noticed by asset protection.

Once he passes all points of pay, the staff does not let the man suspect go one step further.

"One of the AP guys approaches him tries to get him to come back in," said Odessa Crime Stopper's Susan Rogers. "He starts struggling with that AP, and another AP goes out the door and keeps him from taking the basket any further out the door. He ends up shoving the basket into that AP employee."

The suspect gets away from asset protection, hops into a tan-colored Chevy Venture, and takes off.

During the struggle though, a white baseball cap is knocked off the suspect's head with a logo that reads "ALLURA-Fiber cement products by Plycem USA."

Authorities are hoping that cap is a recognizing factor.

"I think someone will recognize this guy right off the bat, especially with that cap he was wearing," Rogers said. "You know how guys are. They wear the same cap over and over again so somebody will recognize him.

If you have any information on this suspect, call the Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS.

You will remain anonymous and could land yourself a cash reward.
