Opelika police are trying to identify a man who was allegedly seen shoplifting from the Best Buy at 2147 Tiger Town Parkway while pushing a child in a stroller.
Authorities said the black man, who appears to be about 30 years old, entered the business around 10:25 a.m. May 10. He walked around the store looking at several electronics.
He walked to the computer department, where he allegedly detached a gaming laptop and placed it in the bottom of the baby stroller. He covered it with a jacket and left without paying for the computer, according to a news release from authorities.
Officials said the suspect, who is about 6 feet tall and 280 pounds, fled the scene in a white or beige Nissan Murano. He was last seen wearing a Boston Red Sox baseball cap, white t-shirt and black shorts.
