Flagstaff police are looking for a man who ran out of a local sporting goods store with more than $1,000 worth of ammunition.
According to the police report, the suspect placed several items in a cart at Sportsman’s Warehouse, located at 2231 E. Route 66, at about 8 p.m. last Thursday. The suspect went to a register and started placing the items on the counter as if he was going to pay.
While the cashier was ringing them up, the suspect grabbed six cans of .223 Remington rifle ammunition out of the cart and ran out the door. A loss prevention employee chased the suspect, who then threw the ammunition on the ground and continued to run. He got into the passenger side of a light-colored Ford F-150 that was waiting near the front of the store. The truck then drove eastbound on East Route 66.
Flagstaff Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information can contact detectives at (928) 679-4104.
The investigation is ongoing.
