Fort Tejon


breastpumps043015bPalmdale Station Detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted for grand theft and robbery.

An unknown suspect has burglarized several Target stores in the Los Angeles County area. His method of operation is to enter the store, select multiple Medela breast pumps (ranging from $170.00 to $400.00) and switch the UPC scanning labels with a significantly less priced Medela item.  Many Target stores have been affected by these thefts and have alerted other Target stores about this individual and his motives.

Recently, in the Los Angeles area, loss prevention recognized the suspect leaving the store with the Medela pumps.  Just before the suspect exited the store, loss prevention approached the suspect to question him about the merchandise. The suspect became combative and physically assaulted the loss prevention officer before running out of the store.

The suspect is described as a male white approximately 45-55 years-old, 6’01” and 250lbs, with brown hair and a mustache.  In the photos shown the suspect is wearing a blue long sleeve shirt, a grey undershirt, blue jeans and a black belt.  The suspect’s vehicle is describe as a possible Jeep Cherokee, 2000-2013, silver in color and a rear hitch rack.

Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect is encouraged to contact Detective Luter of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station at 661-272-2472.Or if you wish to remain anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477) or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

    Taking one I could kinda understand, even though they are free at the hospitals, but this is just douchey…

  6. Altaira Ann Altaira Ann says:

    Okay then, just what every guy needs is a bunch of breast pumps!!

  7. He looks like Mike Rowe LOL now THERE’S a Dirty Job!

  8. Looks like the man stealing the paintball guns .. What do u do with a breast pump and paint ball guns? I wouldn’t want to play in his tournament.

  9. Maybe he believes Gaylord Fokker – and he’s gonna try to milk himself…

  10. John Gilbert John Gilbert says:

    why Target loss prevention doesn’t have pepper spray, or a tasar is beyond me. Then there’s Wallmart. They wave Bye-bye to the perps so they don’t lose thier jobs. But then, I expect nothing less from a company that sell products made in China to the people who were put out of work by the same corp’s, and proudly take taxpayers money via EBT Cards.

    Probably selling them online or a swap meet
