FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - Police are searching for a suspect who stole more than $30,000 worth of merchandise from a sunglasses kiosk inside a Fairview Heights shopping mall.

Employees at the St. Clair Square Mall called police Monday morning to report a man who was acting suspiciously. Officers arrived at the scene and confronted a man carrying two trash bags. The suspect fled in a blue vehicle, which he later abandoned in a residential neighborhood.

According to the Fairview Heights Police Department, the man ran off with more than 100 pairs of sunglasses from the Sunglass Hut kiosk. The department says all of the stolen merchandise was found in the man’s getaway vehicle.

Police believe the suspect is about 32 years old. He’s described as a thin white man with short brown hair.
