Police in Fairview Heights are still looking for a man wanted in connection with the theft of more than $30,000 in sunglasses from a kiosk inside St. Clair Square Mall last weekend. The suspect fled the scene when confronted by police and fled in a vehicle only to be abandoned a short time later.
Police were called to the mall around 9:30am last Sunday when walkers inside the mall noticed the man acting strangely while standing near the business. Officers responded to the scene and confronted the man who fled on foot to his car while carrying the sunglasses in trash bags. The man later abandoned the car in a residential area of Fairview Heights near the mall and all the sunglasses were recovered. Authorities say they are developing a case and believe they have a suspect, but no charges have been filed.
