Conway police are seeking the identity of a man who allegedly stole two ipads and a backpack from Walmart on Skyline Drive.

According to police, the man asked for two iPads in the store’s electronics section.

A clerk walked with the man and the iPads to the front of the store, police said, and gave them to another clerk.

As the clerk rang up the iPads and started ringing up the man’s groceries, the man asked if he could go exchange the backpack for another one.

Police said the subject placed the iPads into the backpack without the clerk’s knowledge and left the store.

The subject headed toward McAlister’s on foot, where he is believed to have gotten into a vehicle. A description of the vehicle was unavailable.

Anyone with information on the subject’s identification is asked to call Conway police at 501-450-6120.
