JONESBORO, Ark. — One woman, two trips and over $3,000 in video games stolen are all part of why police are searching for a suspected store thief.

It was discovered that on two different days, a suspect stole a combined total of $3,000 worth of video games from Walmart, according to the Jonesboro Police Department incident report.

The theft was reported on Tuesday when a Walmart employee brought to police a video depicting a female placing games from the electronics department and then exiting the store.

However, she forgot one vital stop on the way out – the checkout line.

Similarly, another theft happened on separate day, according to the report.

Police noticed that when the suspect entered the store, her purse was relatively flat and open but when leaving, the purse was closed with a noticeable bulge.

Both days, individual losses were over $1,000 with a combined loss of approximately $3,000.

Police are looking for the suspect. If you have information which can assist police in recovering the stolen property, call 935-STOP. You can report crime to Crimestoppers anonymously and may even receive a cash reward for your tip.
