Officer Joseph DeDonato II responded to the Wal-Mart at 840 Post Rd. at approximately 11 a.m. on May 1 in reference to a shoplifting. He said the suspects were not in custody but the merchandise had been returned to the store. Upon arrival, DeDonato met with a Wal-Mart Asset Protection associate, who said he observed an unknown white male, described as 5’10”, with black hair, wearing a gray Under Armour sweatshirt, black and red hat, with black pants, select an air compressor in the Hardware Department and make his way to self-checkout, where he paid for an air hammer (valued at $14.99), but the associate said the man failed to pay the appropriate price for the air compressor. The man then left the building. The associate said he confronted the man and attempted to get him to return back into the store but the man refused and walked away. The associate said he observed the man get into a white Chevy Silverado four-door pickup truck, with a second unknown male wearing a black sweatshirt and black hat, that proceeded south on Post Road. DeDonato said the recovered merchandise was valued at $269. After reviewing video surveillance, the associate said it appeared the man removed the UPC code from the $14.99 air hammer and placed it on the $269 air compressor, attempting to pay significantly less for the air compressor. The associate said Wal-Mart was willing to press charges if the suspect were caught. DeDonato said he obtained two still photographs of both subjects and a Be On the Look Out was put out for the vehicle but it was not located.
