Police search for suspect in string of electronic thefts


This man allegedly stole $4,500 worth of electronics from Walmart in Big Rapids.

The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the person that stole almost $4,500 in electronics from the Big Rapids Walmart early Tuesday morning, March 5.

Photo of suspect’s vehicle caught on surveillance footage during a previous theft. Same vehicle was at the Big Rapids Walmart, but the photo was more blurry.

According to police, surveillance footage showed a black male suspect enter the store at 21400 Perry Ave at about 3:20 a.m. He then pried open a locked case behind the employee counter and also cut a security cable to access high dollar electronics.  The man then stole 5 Apple watch 4th gen, 4 iPad 6th gen, 2 ACER laptops and 3 Lenovo Tab 4s, totaling $4,485.98.

According to Sgt. Mike Mohr, this is just one of 12 similar thefts, mostly occurring in Michigan. The first theft occurred January 22, 2019, and the latest was Tuesday at the Big Rapids Walmart Store.

If you recognize the suspect in the photo, or the suspect’s vehicle, or have any information on this theft, the Sheriff’s Office is asking you to contact the Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office at 231-592-0150 or through email at tips@mecostacounty.org.

Man wanted in connection to larceny

The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office sent out an alert earlier this week asking for help to identify a man who is a person of interest in a felony larceny complaint at the Big Rapids Walmart. The crime took place in the early morning hours of Monday, December 10. They sent out a photo of the man and another of the car he was driving, which looks to be a Dodge Caravan or Chrysler Pacifica.  We then posted it on our Facebook page.

At least one person contacted the Post to let us know they knew who the man was and that they had given the information to a detective. There is no word yet on whether he has been located. Anyone with any information on this incident should contact the Mecosta County Sheriff Office at 231-592-0150 and speak to the Detective Division.
