Whitesburg police are looking for a man who stole two cellular phones and an iPhone case during multiple trips to the Whitesburg Walmart last week.

The man, who has not been identified, pried open a cell phone display case located in Walmart’s electronics department and stole a phone on Sept. 4, Whitesburg Police Officer Alisha Congleton said.

He is shown on video surveillance footage walking into Walmart again at 4:09 p.m. on Sept. 5 and leaving the store at 4:12 p.m. The man broke the hinges off of the display case on Sept. 5 and took another phone and a phone case, Congleton said.

During the two-day period, he stole a Samsung Galaxy valued at $249, an Android smart phone valued at $79 and an iPhone case valued at $29.

The custom-made display case which was damaged is estimated to be worth $1,000, Congleton said.

Anyone with information as to whom the man is in the photo taken from video surveillance is asked to call the Whitesburg Police Department at 633-2737. Callers can remain anonymous.
