Columbia County authorities are trying to identify a man they say shoplifted last month from the Evans Target store.
On May 21, an asset protection employee for Target at 4223 Washington Road said a male came into the store through the exit door at about 11:45 a.m. and grabbed a shopping bag from a register, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
The male, wearing tan shorts and a blue plaid shirt, went to the women’s clothing section and put nearly $130 worth of clothing into the bag, including four sweaters, some shorts, tank tops and a pair of Hello Kitty slippers, according to a report.
The employee said the male was with a woman in a red shirt and torn jeans.
When he checked with the Augusta Target, the employee said he discovered the man also had shoplifted there. A tag number obtained through that incident came back to a rental car from College Park, Ga.
Anyone with information about the male’s or woman’s identities or whereabouts should call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 541-2800.
