Police suspect shoplifter targets North Fulton Target stores



MILTON, Ga. – Police are on the lookout for a man they believe was involved in at least two incidents of shoplifting at local Target stores.

The Milton incident occurred July 26. Store employees told police they found several opened boxes in the store. A check of surveillance video showed a man pick up a Windows 8 software bundle and open it.

He then used a pair of shears to opened the boxes to two Samsung Galaxy phones, each valued at $250. The suspect then left the store and drove off in a silver car.

A similar incident happened July 21 at the Target store in Sandy Springs. A man resembling the perp was seen stealing software and phones. He left the store and drove away this time in a black car registered to a car rental company.

This report appeared in the August 8 issue of the Milton Herald.
