A man dressed in a Wal-Mart uniform stole four televisions from a store in Chesterfield County, Virginia, according to officials.

The man, wearing a blue Wal-Mart vest, placed four HDTVs in a shopping cart and walked out of the store through an emergency exit, police said.

“He loaded four flat-screen televisions onto a cart and pushed them out of the store through an emergency exit. They were loaded into a waiting, full-size SUV,” a Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers spokesperson told WTVR. “Unfortunately, the man was not an employee of that Wal-Mart or of any of the neighboring Wal-Mart stores.”

The crime, reported on Valentine’s Day, was captured on surveillance video.

“He was approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and had a thin build. He wore tan cargo pants and a light gray, hooded sweatshirt under the blue Wal-Mart vest,” the spokesperson said. The man was believed to be in his early 20s.

Anyone with information was asked to call Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
