Wilmington Police looking for man who stole from Best Buy


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police are looking for help identifying a man they say stole from Best Buy at 309 S. College Road last month.

Police say the man went into the store around 7:50 p.m. on March 28. He was only in the store for six minutes. On the way out, surveillance video shows him running off with a Samsung laptop and $800 investigators say he grabbed out of the cash till.

While he was running out of the store detectives say he dropped a pistol, which turned out to be a pellet gun.

If anyone can identify the man in this video, please call Det. Sipe at (910) 343-3627 or (910) 343-3600. Information also may be submitted anonymously through Text-A-Tip. Enter Tip708 and the message, and send to CRIMES (274637).
