CHESTERFIELD , Va., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A Virginia man disguised himself as a Walmart employee to steal TVs from a Walmart.

Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers shared surveillance images of the man, who dressed as a Walmart employee to steal several televisions from the store's stockroom.

The man can be seen in a blue Walmart vest and a grey hooded sweatshirt entering the stock room and loading the merchandise onto a lift.

"He loaded four flat-screen televisions onto a cart and pushed them out of the store through an emergency exit," they wrote. "They were loaded into a waiting, full-size SUV. Unfortunately, the man was not an employee of that Walmart or of any of the neighboring Walmart stores."

The incident occurred on Jan. 14 at around 7 p.m. and the suspect has yet to be caught.

He was described as a 5-foot-10-inch tall black man in his early 20's. Crime Solvers encourage anyone with information on the theft to contact them.
