TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pima County Sheriff's Department is asking for help identifying a man who tried to steal $150 worth of beef from a Walmart store then got into a fight with the security manager.

Deputies responded to the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 2823 W. Valencia Road in Tucson on Sept. 26 regarding a shoplifting suspect.

The manager told deputies that he observed the suspect coming into the store, grabbing a shopping basket and then walking to the meat department. He put approximately $150 worth of beef in his basket and attempted to leave the store without paying for it.

The security manager confronted the suspect by the store exit and they got into a brief struggle.

According to sheriff's officials, a vehicle had already pulled up in front of the exit. The male driver got out and assisted the shoplifting suspect. Both males then left in the car.

The sheriff's department has released surveillance video of the suspect and the scuffle with the security manager.

Anyone who can identify the suspect shown in the surveillance video or has any other information on the case is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
