That doesn't look like the guy on the video to me but maybe I am missing something but the guy on the video's face looks rounder and fuller to me, even the ears look different. Oh well, if it is him I hope they catch him, he is probably trading cigarettes for drugs since they cost so much now days...

I'm shocked he has previous mug shots on file. The liberals want you to believe criminals can be rehabilitated.

Cigarettes are a terrible

Cigarettes are a terrible addiction and lead even adults into crime. How long will the tax man allow these tobacco peddlers to take advantage of the weak of will and weak of mind?

wanted criminal, but mug shot

wanted criminal, but mug shot on file.....hmmmmmm this leads me to believe that this isn't his first crime he committed...where is the 3 strikes law when you need it...1 step build prison capable of holding 50,000 inmates then institute a 2-3 strikes law and then as we say at the gas station...."filler up"

I don't think it looks like

I don't think it looks like him at all. I don't envy the investigators trying to match up the video to a mugshot, it doesn't look easy to do to me. Surely we can get better video quality in these stores nowadays?
