Columbus police searching for suspect who stole Walmart cash register

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Columbus police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man they say stole a cash register from Walmart.

Police were called to the Walmart on Victory Dr. just after 9:00 a.m. Wednesday in reference to a theft.

Officers were informed that a man between 5′10″ and 6′0″ with an average build forcibly removed a cash register and stole it from the store.

The man was later found on surveillance footage.

It is unknown at this time the amount of money in the stole register.
