Suspected shoplifter sought after chase

RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police are looking for a man who they say shoplifted from a store at Northpark Mall before leading officers on a chase.

Surveillance cameras at the Dillard's department store in the mall captured video of the suspected shoplifter. Police say a loss prevention officer approached the suspect who then fled into his vehicle with a small child and possibly a woman.

Ridgeland police officers pursued the vehicle, but "due to the driver's reckless driving and concern for the public's safety" the officers ended the pursuit.

The man is wanted for felony fleeing. If you have any information on this suspect, call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-8477 (601-355-TIPS) or the Ridgeland Police Department at 601-856-2121.
