Howland police seek shoplifting suspect

Howland police are looking for a man who tried shoplifting from Kohl's

HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Howland police want the public’s help to find a man they say used a baby stroller to try to steal merchandise from Kohl’s department store in the Howland Commons Plaza on state Route 46.

Officers said the man captured on surveillance video piled items from the store into the empty stroller, then walked out. When a loss prevention employee came up to him, he ditched the stroller and ran away.

There was no baby inside the stroller. The store recovered the stolen merchandise.

Police said other business owners need to be on the lookout in case the man tries it again.
