Walmart, 4500 N. Main St., became the scene of a strong-arm robbery around 10 p.m. Friday, after a male subject removed a 32-inch television, still chained to a shelf, and ran from the store with the television set and the display case.
When the subject got to the parking lot, he demanded a woman’s keys and took her vehicle.
The suspect caused considerable damage while making his escape. Roswell Police Department Public Information Liaison Sabrina Morales confirmed: “He smashed into several parked cars.”
The suspect backed into one vehicle and damaged four vehicles in all, one belonging to the Walmart Loss Prevention officer.
A woman driving to Walmart reported seeing a television set in someone’s front yard; however, when officials went to check, the television was no longer there.
The male also stole a package of socks and a shoe care kit. The socks were recovered in the parking lot. The police located the woman’s car on Sunday.
Police are seeking information about this incident and ask anyone who has information to contact the Roswell Police Department at 575-624-6770.
