ENID, Oklahoma – Enid police are looking for a suspect who stole a sweatshirt from a local store and returned the next day wearing it.

Enid Police officers were called to the OnCue Express convenience store at 1623 S. Van Buren in reference to a man who stole a "Pugs Gear" brand black sweatshirt Wednesday night.

Video surveillance showed the suspect taking the sweatshirt off the rack and removing the tags. The man later puts the sweatshirt over his left shoulder and pays for another item, without paying for the shirt.

Another employee recognized the suspect coming back in the store the next day at about 10:00 a.m.

After reviewing the surveillance video, workers noticed the suspect was wearing the sweatshirt stolen a day earlier. According to the store clerk, the suspect appeared intoxicated and left prior to officers being contacted.

The suspect is described as a white male, mid 20s, 5'6, 160 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and a thin unshaven beard and mustache. He was last seen wearing a white collar shirt, with a thin black horizontal line, blue sweat pants, white shoes and a black baseball cap with an unknown red logo on it.

If you recognize this suspect, call the Enid Police Department at (580) 242-7000 or CrimeStoppers at (580) 233-6233.
