ECSO Seeks Cantonment Ace Hardware Retail Theft Suspect

January 10, 2022

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man that allegedly stole several items from the Cantonment Ace Hardware Store in the 1500 block of south Highway 29 in late December.

He was wearing a blue hat, sunglasses, a gray hoodie over a blue shirt, jeans, and shoes that were black and white.  The store noted that it was warm — in the middle 70’s — at the time of theft, making the jacket somewhat unusual.

The man allegedly took a power tool and two batteries.

“We are not a large corporation. We are a small business. We can not tolerate theft,” the store posted on their Facebook page.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (850) 433-STOP or the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.

    Looks like he has on a blue work shirt with a white logo/blue lettering sticking out on his left chest area, as well @ Debbie. ECSO probably picked up on that already.

    If anyone who actually knows him happens to see this it should be easy to identify him. He has that little skinny sideburn and the thin line of facial hair going around his chin and also that skinny line of hair running from his chin to his lip . Take a second look . There’s no good excuse for stealing . We all end up paying for it in the long run .

    This is Florida, snatch and grab, or theft of any kind is not welcome here. I hope this man is found and convicted.
