Wednesday morning March 29, 2017, before 4:30am a well-dressed white male entered the Ponca City Wal-Mart. He asked for assistance with computers. Two HP Envy laptops were removed from the secured displays and taken to the register by the department employee. Once at the checkout the customer began complaining about the boxes being faded. The checker allowed the customer to take a closer look at the laptop boxes. The customer became a suspect when he grabbed the boxes and ran out the south exit of the store to and entered the get-away car.
Outside the store was a dark colored sports car waiting for the suspect. The vehicle had the new Oklahoma license plate with the first three letters of ATT. The suspect entered the car on the passenger side and the vehicle quickly exited the Wal-Mart parking lot.
