CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — No one at a Virginia Walmart thought anything about a man in a blue Walmart vest loading TVs and heading out the door. Only problem was the man didn’t work at the store.

Surveillance video shows the man wearing a blue Walmart vest as he places four HDTVs in a shopping cart and walks out one of the store’s emergency exits.

“They were loaded into a waiting, full-size SUV,” a Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers spokesperson told WTVR.

The crime was reported on Jan. 14. The suspect was not an employee at the store or any neighboring Walmart stores.

“He was approximately 5′ 10″ tall and had a thin build. He wore tan cargo pants and a light gray, hooded sweatshirt under the blue Walmart vest,” the spokesperson said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers Program at 804-748-0660.
