SUSPECT BREAKS INTO WALMART CASH REGISTERS:

Detectives are searching for a suspect wanted for using a hammer and screwdriver to break into Walmart cash registers at eight locations, the majority in eastern Alabama. 

Pictures of the suspect and his vehicle are posted to the right of this story. The pictures are from the Walmart in Birmingham on Montclair Road July 6.

Police said the suspect targeted locations in Fort Payne, Center, Boaz, Gadsden, Attalla, Springville, Birmingham and Hoover.

"He's coming in at a good hour to commit a crime like this," said Birmingham Detective Pat Green. "He came in about 1:45 in the morning, and once inside, you can see him slither around so that patrons and employees don't see him doing this crime."

If you've seen him, contact Crime Stoppers immediately. You will remain anonymous.
