Hewitt police need help identifying a theft suspect.

Police said the theft happened at the AT&T Store on North Hewitt Drive on April 10 just after 4 p.m.

A man walked into the store and asked about buying a phone, according to Hewitt Police Department Chief James Devlin. 

While store employees were helping other customers, Devlin said removed a Samsung Galaxy S7, which costs about $595, from a display rack, put it in his pocket, and walked out of the store.

He said store employees didn't notice the missing phone until a few hours later.

If you have any information about the identity of the suspect or where he can be found, contact the Hewitt Police Department at 254-666-6272.
