POTSDAM, N.Y. (WWNY) - State police are asking for help identifying a suspect who walked out of Potsdam’s Walmart with four new tires he didn’t pay for.

Troopers say it happened around 2:30 p.m. on February 23.

Police say store employees tried to stop him, but he continued out of the store, loaded the tires in what's believed to be a dark-colored Dodge Dakota pickup truck, and drove off in the direction of the village of Potsdam.

Troopers say the tires are valued at $167 apiece.
