Chesapeake, Va. – A suspect is wanted for trying to steal computers from a Chesapeake business on two different occasions, police tell NewsChannel 3.

On April 23, 2013 a male suspect attempted to steal a computer from a department store located in the 1500 block of Sam’s Circle.

The suspect ran away from the scene without the computer when he was approached in the parking lot by a Loss Prevention Officer, police say.

The same suspect returned to the store on April 26, 2013 and again attempted to steal a computer. He fled the store without the computer when an alarm sounded at an emergency exit he passed through.

If anyone has information regarding the identity of the suspect, they are encouraged to call, text, or submit an online tip to the Chesapeake Crime Line.
