Controllers seemed to be his primary desire.
by: Zak Kerr Staff Writer/Reporter

OCOEE  Ocoee police and Central Florida Crimeline are seeking the help of the public in identifying and locating a man they believe has stolen many controllers from GameStop at 10576 W. Colonial Drive.

Can you help Ocoee police identify this man accused of theft?

At 1:13 p.m. April 24, police responded to GameStop, which had pictures of a man in camo shorts and a gray t-shirt with "SLUT" printed on it walking out of the store with three Afterglo controllers that had been secured by magnetic locks. With a personal device, this roughly 5-foot-10, 185-pound man unlocked the magnets and then exited with the unpaid controllers, worth about $150 altogether, according to police reports.

Just six days later, this time at 6:13 p.m., police responded to another theft from GameStop -- by what appears to be the same suspect, per reports. Reports showed the suspect in camo shorts and a white t-shirt with "Hustle" printed on it; the man exited without paying for five Wii controllers, likely priced at $39.99 apiece.

Contact Ocoee police with any information that could help catch this man accused of stealing about $350 worth of controllers at (407) 905-3161 or [email protected]. Crimeline also is available at or (800) 423-8477.
