At the Lookout Valley Walmart, a man was seen carrying a pair of shorts, some flip flops and some deodrant.

When he was spotted a couple of minutes later, he had a bag of items and was leaving without bothering to go through checkout.

A greeter asked to check the bag, but he refused.

The man then got into a four-door Cadillac.

The tag on the vehicle came back to a woman with a different type vehicle on Jeffery Lane.

Molly Donnellan of Houston Street said she partied with a white male she knew only as "Squirrel."

She said she parked her 2002 Honda Civic worth $10,000 and fell asleep.

When she awoke, her car keys and the Civic were gone and so was "Squirrel."

He is described as about 6'1" and 160 pounds with blonde hair that is shaved.
