Cleveland Police are searching for the identity of a man who entered Walmart on Keith Street recently and took electronic items without paying for them.

According to Detective Bill Parks of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, on June 11 the suspect entered the store and picked up a Samsung Galaxy tablet.

Parks said the male then reportedly concealed the tablet and left the store without paying for it.

The theft occurred just after midnight.

The next day, the same man entered the store once again and allegedly took a computer.

Store security cameras captured images of the suspect as he entered and exited the store.

The tablet was valued at $149. According to Parks, the computer was valued at $349.

Anyone having information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Parks at 559-3321, or CPD at 728-7311.

- Video security was also instrumental in determining the identity of a man who reportedly entered Stuart School recently and took property, causing damage.

Warrants were issued for Adam Dylan Souders during an investigation.

Souders turned himself in at the Bradley County Jail Monday evening, according to Parks, who was the lead detective in the case.

Video footage reportedly captured Souders on the school property, taking a computer and then damaging a sign as he left. A number of leads were developed, resulting in the issuance of warrants.

Souders was charged with theft over $500 and vandalism over $500.

- A camera, Pandora bracelet and other jewelry items were discovered missing from a Gap Springs Road residence after the homeowner returned to find a burglary had occurred.

According to a report filed by Deputy Bryan Chancey, Debra E. Hammontree said someone entered her home late last week and took the items.

A door at the home was not secured at the time of the burglary, according to Chancey’s report.

Total loss was estimated at $2,800.

Investigation is continuing.
