Man Pulls Gun On Walmart Workers (With Video)

February 26, 2013

What started out as a retail theft turned into a robbery when a suspect pulled what appeared to be a black semiautomatic pistol on loss prevention officers at a local Walmart. Now, Escambia Sheriff’s investigators are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect.

On Saturday, February 23, Escambia Sheriff’s investigators responded to a retail theft which occurred shortly after noon at the Walmart located in the 4600 block of Mobile Highway.

Loss prevention officers had witnessed the individual conceal several items from the store before checking out and failing to pay for the items. They then escorted him to the loss prevention office after a brief struggle in the exit area.

Before deputies arrived, dispatchers advised them that the person in question had pulled a weapon on store employees. The suspect fled and deputies circulated the area; however he was not located. He is described as a clean shaven white male with light brown hair. He was wearing dark pants and a gray tee shirt with a dark grey fleece pullover.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP or the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620.

    1. Maybe they can run his picture through some face recognition software and come up with a match.

    Note: criminals are armed whether we are or not
    Note: cameras are numerous

    And yes, I know he’s a good boy and pulling a gun on folks is just a childish prank and it would be judgmental to saddle him with a criminal record and nobody was hurt this time.
