Aug 6, 2022
Media Contact : Brian Bruchey, PIO

***UPDATE: AUGUST 24th***
Thanks to a tipster, this suspect has been identified as 40-year old Jeremy Owens of Winter Haven.


The guy in this photo is being sought by a Polk County Sheriff's Office detective after he managed to skate out of the Mulberry Walmart with more than $1500 worth of merchandise on August 6th, at around 5:30 p.m.

The suspect is believed to be a white male. He was wearing a "Salt Life" t-shirt and neon yellow slides as he rode that cart out of the store. 

The detective would love to find him and fit him with an orange PCSO "Jail Life" shirt and a pair of terracotta-colored slides.

He left the store in a black Chevy Silverado extended cab with blacked-out rims, chrome bumper, and red & white back window stickers.

If you know who this suspect is, please contact Deputy Creekmore at 863-577-1600 or (Case #22-32757).
