Police said thieves in two recent cases carried stacks of goods out of the Lookout Valley Walmart without bothering to pay.
In one case, two black females had $313.84 in groceries. They presented a SNAP card, but it was declined.
The women, who had the items in two large black purses, then walked out and left in a red Dodge Ram pickup truck.

In another case at the same store, a black male in a camo hat and a black shirt, piled a buggy high.
He was loaded down with a garbage can, four Easter baskets, a splash pool, a rug, a bag of dog food, a coffee maker, a tricycle and cookware.
He did not bother with a SNAP card, but headed straight for the front door.
An employee yelled at him, but he kept going, though he did drop the splash pool and left it behind.
He sped away in a red Dodge pickup truck with no tag.

The suspect is a white male, 20-25, wearing a dark hat, shorts and a dark T-shirt.
