Suffolk, Va. - Police are searching for a man wanted for a robbery at an area Walmart.

They're looking for Galatians Edmonds Jr., 29.

According to police, Edmonds went into the Walmart on College Dr. around 1 a.m. on Jan. 29.

Not long after, police say he is seen on surveillance video running out of the store with a PlayStation 4.

Most concerning, they say when confronted by a clerk, he implied he had a gun.

"There's tons of people in Walmart, all hours of the day and night," said Cpt. Janet Brandsasse, "There's a potential for somebody to get hurt."

During their investigation, police say they also learned Edmonds could be connected to larcenies at other area businesses.

"We've gotten other leads that he's been frequenting the businesses of the northern end of Suffolk involved in other incidents, and we would really like to get him picked up," said Cpt. Brandsasse.

Although they have not confirmed that he has a gun, police say you should consider him armed and call police if you know where he is.

"We don't want to see anything further happen," said Brandsasse.

Edmonds last known address is on Ambler Ave. in Portsmouth, but police say he's known to spend time in the northern end of Suffolk.

If you know where he is, call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.  You will remain anonymous and you could get a cash reward.
