On Saturday August 5th at approximately 4pm, a man was seen entering the Walmart location at SR-23 in Oneonta, NY and heading straight to the back of the store to the "Home Section". It is suggested that this individual placed 3 Shark vacuums and 2 Bissell vacuums into a shopping cart and left the store with the items.

Although these images are not sharp, witnesses say this suspect was wearing the following;
  • Red bandana on his head
  • Facemask
  • Black t-shirt
  • Tan pants
  • Black sneakers

The individual seen in these photos left Walmart in a black, late model, Dodge Charger. Officers have reason to believe that the suspect then headed east toward Davenport. Walmart Asset Protection could not identify the male or acquire a registration for the vehicle. The stolen property is worth $1465.00.
