"In both instances the suspect exited the K-Mart through a back room with items that he did not purchase," police said. "He was seen leaving in a bronze or brown Chevrolet Impala or Caprice that was driven by another unknown suspect."

Police on Tuesday released grainy surveillance footage that appeared to show a man pushing an overflowing cart through a dark room. Officials also distributed a still photo of the suspect in the store before fleeing with stolen items.
