Public’s Help sought in Sunday Wal-Mart Shoplifting

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help regarding a shoplifting that occurred Sunday afternoon around 6pm at the Seneca Walmart on Sandifer Boulevard, explains Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Jimmy Watt. “A deputy responded to the store around 6:07pm to begin the investigation. The deputy was informed that a white male came into the store and removed a camera from its box. As he passed the last point of sell, he was confronted by loss prevention. The male reportedly ran from loss prevention and got into a blue in color Chevrolet Cavalier that had a paper tag. The vehicle left the parking lot in the direction of Westminster and was not located. The value of the camera was around $300. The deputy was able to obtain pictures of the suspect in question, the vehicle in question as well as the torn camera box. The suspect was wearing a navy blue baseball hat and a navy blue shirt with white stripes and blue jeans.” The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with any information on this case or who can identify the suspect in question to contact CrimeStoppers at 864-638-STOP, 1-888-CRIME-SC, or text in your tip to 274637.
