Police today released security-camera images of a woman suspected of stealing cell phones worth nearly $27,000 from an Opelika Walmart Supercenter.
The photographs show a black woman who appears to have long, red hair, and to be wearing a black cap, black shirt and red pants.
Between 11:23 and 11:35 p.m. CST Tuesday, she went to the electronics section of the 2900 Pepperell Parkway store, pried open a cabinet in which cell phones were stored, and put 39 in a gray duffel bag, police said.
She later concealed the loot in stolen plastic Walmart shopping bags before walking out of the store, investigators said.
Never miss a local story.
Opelika police ask that anyone who can identify the woman call their investigative services division at 334-705-5220. Tipsters who want to remain anonymous may call the department’s “Secret Witness Hotline” at 334-745-8665.
