On 4/30/19 at approx. 5PM WPD took a report of the theft of 4 cases of Energy Drinks from a convenience store at the corner of Columbia and Center Ridge Rds. The male suspect entered the employee cooler of the store, danced around in celebration, and gathered the cases before having difficulty opening the cooler door to leave. He left without paying for the almost $300 worth of merchandise and left the area in an older white Jeep Cherokee. The suspect is described as a white male with a brown or black beard.
We are looking to identify him. If anyone knows the suspect or has further information they are asked to contact the Westlake Police Department at the non-emergency number of 440-871-3311. You can remain anonymous if you wish.
Parts of the video are currently posted on the official Westlake Police Department Facebook page: www.facebook.com/westlakepolice.
