Cody police are asking for the public's help to identify a man suspected of stealing roughly $1,600 worth of merchandise from Walmart on Saturday.

The Park County Sheriff's Office says the man – white and with a short, military-style haircut – took electronics equipment that included two Toshiba laptops, two Hewlett-Packard laptops and two Verizon MOTO G cellphones between midnight and 1 a.m. on March 22.

The man reportedly broke into a locked case to get the Toshiba laptops and cut the cellphone's packaging to get them off a locked peg hook, police say. The man exited the store with those items, then returned and stole the two Hewlett-Packard laptops, police say, avoiding store employees in the process.

The Park County Sheriff's said Thursday that the man left in a Subaru Forester-type SUV, but Cody police said Friday they believe the man was driving a newer two-tone, four-door shortbox pickup with a toolbox in the bed. Police said the truck may be a Dodge Mega cab.

Anyone with information about the theft – or any similar incidents – is asked to contact Cody Police Officer Rayna Wortham at 307-527-8700.
