MERCED, CA – A local Merced computer retail store called Action Computers located at 900 Loughborough Drive Suite B became the target of a shoplifter when the alleged suspect entered the store at about 9:30 a.m. and said he was “just looking around”. One of the staff assisted the man by answering questions he had.
Then when two other staff had to leave and the rest of the staff was distracted, he calmly picked up and HP laptop and walked out of the store at 9:48 a.m. He was caught on camera from several different angles.
The time stamps on the pictures from the second DVR are off by approximately 13 minutes (that has since been corrected).
Anyone with any information is asked to call Mike, the store owner, at (209) 384-2675
