Lakeway police looking for man accused of shoplifting

The Lakeway Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a man they say shoplifted items from a store.

Officers responded to an unidentified store just after 2:30 p.m. June 14 to a theft-shoplifting incident. 

Surveillance footage showed a man exiting the store without paying for the items in his cart. When approached by store employees, the man ran from the property, but police say he was not seen getting into a vehicle.
