Lakewood police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of stealing alcohol from eight Target stores in Pierce County since August.

The most recent robbery occurred Dec. 9 at a Target in the 5600 block of Lakewood Towne Center Boulevard Southwest.

Police said the man entered the store, grabbed several CDs and a bottle of vodka and tried to leave. During a confrontation with a female store security officer, he shoved her into the doors and ran.

The alleged robber is black, about 30 years old, 6 feet and 250 pounds. He has short black hair, a mustache and a beard.

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the man’s arrest and conviction. Tipsters may call 253-591-5959.
