MORRIS PLAINS — The Morris Plains Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying the individual responsible for a theft.
On Sunday, October 8, the pictured suspect entered the GNC store, located at 1711 Route 10, and concealed over $600 worth of store merchandise before walking out.
The suspect was approached by a store employee when he discovered he was taking store items. Once confronted, the suspect exited the store and entered the vehicle, described as a white Subaru Impreza, that may have a Pennsylvania registration, but this has not been confirmed.
While the store employee tried to get the suspect to come back into the store, the suspect took off in the Subaru nearly striking the employee’s foot.
When the store employee looked back at the video surveillance, it was discovered that he had taken numerous store products by shoving them into his jacket.
The suspect was described as a white man in his 50s wearing a surgical mask and glasses. The store employee added that he believed that the suspect may have attempted to conceal his identity further by wearing a fake mustache.
