The OPD is seeking help in identifying a female suspect involved in Best Buy theft of property. She is shown leaving the store in this white vehicle, likely a Lincoln MKC.

The Opelika Police Department is seeking help in identifying another suspect in a theft of property at the Best Buy at 2147 Tiger Town Parkway. It's the second theft from this store within a week.

On Friday, the OPD began investigating the theft of property in which the security camera on Thursday night caught footage of a white female with blonde hair concealing a Lenovo laptop and Ring doorbell in her purse before exiting the store at approximately 8:28 p.m., according to police.

The video shows the suspect wearing a white shirt, jeans and white sandals. She was seen leaving the parking lot in a white SUV, likely a Lincoln MKC.

Prior to this investigation, detectives investigated a theft of property at the same Best Buy, which involved two male suspects, on Oct. 11.

The video shows the two suspects, both black males, entering the store at approximately 11:48 a.m. The first suspect was wearing a white shirt and a black jacket while the second suspect was wearing a black hat, glasses, a black shirt and gray sweatpants, according to police.

The two suspects allegedly stole headphones and security cameras before leaving in a silver four-door sedan, police said.

The OPD is asking for information on these incidents or for the identity of the suspects. Contact the Opelika Police Department Detective Division at 334-705-5220 or the Secret Witness Hotline at 334-745-8665 if you have any information.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can submit tips through the Opelika Police Mobile App, or forward tips through Central Alabama Crime Stoppers at 334-215-STOP(7867), toll free at 1-833-AL1-STOP, or via their Facebook page, or the OPD website.
