About 2,200 rounds of ammunition stolen from Walmart store in Centennial; suspect sought

Suspect loaded ammunition into cart

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Arapahoe County sheriff's investigators are asking the public to help identify a man who stole thousands of rounds of ammunition from a Centennial Walmart store in October.

The sheriff's office released surveillance photos of the suspect, who was wearing a yellow baseball cap with a green bill, a gray long-sleeve T-shirt and blue jeans.

On Oct. 14, 2013, the man entered the Walmart store at 10900 E. Briarwood Ave., forced open a locked case containing ammunition, loaded the ammunition into a shopping cart, and rolled it out of the store, the sheriff's office said. The suspect then reentered the store and was seen leaving with a bag containing unknown items.

The sheriff's office said the man stole:

--About 1,000 rounds of .223-caliber ammunition, which can be used for military assault rifles like the AR-15 and bolt-action "varmint" hunting rifles.  

--About 1,000 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition, which can be used for military-style rifles, including AK-47 assault rifles.

--About 100 rounds of .40-caliber ammunition, which is primarily used for handguns.  

The man may have been driving a newer model black 2-door convertible sports car, similar to a Corvette, sheriff's officials said.

Anyone with information about this crime or the identity of the suspect can anonymously call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). Tipsters can also text 274637 (CRIMES) and then enter the title DMCS and your message.

Tipsters may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
