Monday, November 21, 2022: at 3:38pm & 4:46pm: Paris Police Officer responded to two
felony shopliftings in the 2400 block of North Main Street. An identified 45-year-old white
male from around the Tyler, Texas area entered the store in August of 2022 and again today.

The suspect selects an item in a large box, removes the one large item and re-fills the box
with an assorted selection of other items and checks out with the deception of one item.
Today was not the suspects lucky day. The cashier had prior sold the same item that the
suspect selected today and noticed the box to be much heavier than the box containing the
same item sold to an earlier customer. Camera surveillance linked the incidents. Suspect
stole over $5,000 worth of items in August and over $2,500 dollars’ worth of items today.
The cases are being prepared for the District Attorneys Office for prosecution.

contact the current resident and request that she move her car so that she and an un-
identified guy with a truck and trailer could retrieve the Uplander. The vehicle was entered
as stolen.
