SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont police department is searching for a suspect who they say threatened employees of a department store after he was spotted stealing jewelry.
South Burlington Police say they were called to the Sears Store at the University Mall after a store loss prevention officer said the suspect threatened to use pepper spray on the workers.
This incident was captured on store video.
Police say the suspect appears to be a stocky white male, approximately 5-feet 9-inches tall with a goatee.
Police say the suspect was seen approaching a car in the parking lots, at which time an occupant inside the vehicle said to the suspect: ‘‘You had better not have been stealing.’’
