The Oro Valley Police Department asks for the public's assistance in locating a person of interest in a large computer theft that took place in early July.

Police say two males were seen on surveillance video entering a Walmart store in the 2100 block of E. Tangerine Road on July 2, where they reportedly took a large amount of Apple computer products around 2:20 a.m.

Both suspects were also reportedly seen leaving the store, and one male returned shortly after. He picked up a crowbar inside the Walmart, smashed a glass case and reportedly stole numerous Apple products.

The man then ran out of the store and into a Chevrolet Impala, also caught on surveillance video.

The OVPD Criminal Investigations Unit located the license plate, which led to the capture of one suspect, 28-year-old Emond Hill. He was charged with conspiracy to commit theft, conspiracy to commit third degree burglary and trafficking in stolen property.

Police continue to search for the remaining suspect, 27-year-old Eric Mcrae. He is described as a 5'8" black male, weighing about 165 pounds.

Anyone with information on Mcrae's whereabouts is asked to call 911, 88-CRIME or OVPD at (520) 229-4900.
