Maryville police asked for the public’s help Friday in identifying a shoplifting suspect pictured on Walgreens surveillance footage dated Oct. 6.
Police believe the woman shoplifted more than $500 worth of cologne and perfume from the store, according to Maryville Det. Keith Mumper.
Mumper added that Walgreens personnel did not realize the theft had occurred until they completed an inventory months later and discovered they were missing more than $500 in product.
Officers came to assist the staff and eventually, Mumper said, they located footage of the woman taking the product from an enclosed glass case.
The woman is black with long, braided hair, police wrote in a Facebook post. She is wearing a white long-sleeve shirt with black stripes, blue jeans and has a dark brown or black purse.
She is seen in the photo with a small child entering the Walgreens.
Anyone with information is asked to call Mumper at 618-344-8899.
