They'll Take Anything, Anytime, Anywhere

On Tuesday September 10th,  around 3:45 P.M., a male in his 50's was heading back to his vehicle in the parking lot when he observed someone stealing items out of the back of his pickup truck. The victim said the suspect was placing the stolen items in the back passenger side of a small green sedan. When the victim confronted the male, he ran and got into the driver's seat of the vehicle, which was already running.

The victim ran around to the rear of the suspect vehicle and leaned into the vehicle trying to get the keys. The vehicle suddenly backed out and struck the victim's leg with the left rear tire. The victim was thrown to the ground and the suspect vehicle leave the area heading west through the parking lot.
The suspect was described as a white male in his 40's, 6-feet tall, wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans. He also had on a red ball cap. 

The suspect vehicle is described as a 4-door sedan, possibly a Dodge Neon or Avenger, green in color with a big spoiler on the back, and displaying Missouri tags. Please see the surveillance photos below. 

The victim in this case was lucky as he only sustained minor injuries and didn't need to be transported to a local hospital. The suspect got away with about two hundred dollars of tools and proved that they'll do anything to take your stuff.
