KAMLOOPS - Crime Stoppers in Kamloops are looking for a man suspected of shoplifting from a Brocklehurst grocery store.

The organization says in a Facebook post a man entered the Save on Food in the 1800 block of Tranquille Road on Oct. 13. He was acting suspicious, so a loss prevention officer followed him around the store.

The suspect allegedly picked items up and walked out of the store without paying for them. When the officer confronted him, the man allegedly became physically and verbally aggressive.

Crime Stoppers says the man threatened to punch the officer's teeth out before taking off.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 6'1", who was wearing a grey toque, black winter jacket and dark pants.

If you recognize this man, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
