MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach Police are looking for a man they say stole cash from the register of a hotel gift shop after attempting to cover the surveillance camera with a maxi pad.
According to the police report, the suspect entered the gift shop of a hotel in the 7100 block of Ocean Boulevard at about 1 a.m. on February 19. After looking around the store, he stood on a chair and placed the pad on the surveillance camera so that his acts couldn't be seen.
He was later seen on the surveillance camera tape at about 2:25 a.m. taking the pad off the camera and once again looking around the store, according to the report. About $125 in cash was missing from the register.
Police were also told that the suspect may have attempted to break into games in the game room for money.
The suspect is described in the police report as a white man, aged 22 to 39, 5-foot-7-inches to 5-foot-10-inches tall and 150 to 190 pounds in weight.
Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Lt. Prock at the Myrtle Beach Police Dept - 843-918-1365 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and reference case number 14-003312.
