Lynnwood—It's a tale of videotape in Lynnwood and at least one detective needs your help to close the book on this sneaky theft story.
Police say this is the way the retail store scam is working:
Suspect #1 goes into store, legally buys a Dyson vacuum cleaner for between $400-500.
Suspect #2 gets the receipt from Suspect #1, goes into store, finds the same model vacuum, rips off the security device and walks out with the stolen vacuum.
This closeup photo is of the second suspect, who police are asking for the public's help in identifying.
The Kohl's store in Lynnwood isn't the only store hit by this clever theft scam.
Walmart and Home Depot have lost money to thieves this way too.
Detectives suspect the men are selling the stolen vacuums on Craigslist or other websites for a good chunk of change.
If you recognize the person in this photo, please call Lynnwood Police.
