Walmart Burglar At Large

Local authorities are investigating a robbery that occurred at the Walmart department store in the Sunrise Mall on Saturday, May 11 at 1:25 a.m.

The subject was described by police as a 5-foot, 8-inch-tall, medium-build man, wearing eyeglasses, khaki pants, a blue shirt, a blue Yankee cap and orange and white gloves. The man was allegedly let into the store after closing by a store manager, who assumed he was a store employee.

Once inside, the subject pointed a black handgun at the victim and forced the victim to the “money room,” ordering that the safe be opened. The subject then filled a black duffle bag with money before he fled on foot in an unknown direction with an undetermined amount of cash.

There were no injuries reported.

Police ask anyone with information regarding this crime to contact the Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-Tips. All callers will remain anonymous.
