Police Chief Paul Bostrack said a young Asian male left the store about 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday without paying for a large number of electronic items. He said the lone clerk on duty was bagging up the merchandise when he went to the back of the store after the male requested a cellphone. That's when the man fled the store.
The items included four I-pod Touches, three radar detectors, and four digital scanners, plus numerous other items. Their total value was $3900.
If you have information about the suspect you are asked to call the police department or Winona Area Crime Stoppers where you can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.
The man was described as mid to late teens, with a black coat with red and white racing style logos. He was believed to be 120 to 140 pounds, and between 5-5 and 5-9 inches tall.
