Cheboygan Police Ask For Help in Search for Theft Suspect

Cheboygan City Police are looking for help in identifying a man believed to have stolen a cash register from the local Walmart.

He’s the heavy set man in the gray t-shirt.

Police believe he is 45-50, and he appears to have a bad back.

Cheboygan Police say he diverted the attention of the clerk by calling her from his cell phone, and then told her his wife had left her checkbook in the garden area.

While she went to look for it, he unplugged the register and fled out the door.

Police say he is traveling with a 12-14-year-old black male.

Police say he was not involved in the theft.

Anyone with information should call the Cheboygan Department of Public Safety at 800-577-1911.
