TUCSON - Pima County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a shoplifter who stole $150 worth of beef from a southwest-side Walmart Neighborhood Market after getting into a physical confrontation with the store's security guard.
Pima County Sheriff's Department deputies responded to the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 2823 W. Valencia Road at about 9:15 p.m. on September 26, according to a news release from PCSD.
The store manager told deputies he saw a man enter the store, grab a shopping basket, then walk to the meat department and load up on $150 worth of beef. When the suspect tried to leave the store without paying, the security manager confronted him by the store's exit, and a "brief physical altercation ensued," the PCSD release states.
A vehicle had pulled up, and the male driver got out of the car and assisted the shoplifting subject. Both men fled the scene in the car.
Anyone who can identify the suspect shown in the surveillance video or with any other information on the case is asked by PCSD to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
