Mt. Juliet Police spokesperson Sgt. Tyler Chandler said there are two separate incidents when a man and a boy stole over $1,400 in merchandise from Walmart.

“We want to identify an adult man who is using a child to help him shoplift,” said Chandler. “The unknown man is using a young boy to carry out his stolen items.”

Chandler said the first theft took place Feb. 7 when the man and boy stole two GoPro cameras. He said the next day the two pushed a cart with a flat screen television and another GoPro camera out of the store without paying. He said it’s all on the store’s surveillance system. Chandler described the man as white, 35 to 50 years old, 6 feet tall with a large build. The boy is described as about 10 to 14 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall with a skinny build. Their getaway vehicle is said to be a small black pickup truck.
