ANNA, IL -

Police are investigating two criminal cases and need your help locating people they believe are involved.

A man is suspected of stealing more than $1,500-worth of merchandise from the Walmart in Anna, Illinois, then returning to the scene of the crime. Police say the man, caught on security camera footage back in July, hid several high-dollar items inside a large merchandise box from the toy aisle. Those items included ink jet cartridges, teeth whitening strips and men's and women's razor refills. 

The man left with those items on July 20, then returned on July 31 to pay the the price listed on the toy box. Police say he did not offer payment for the items inside. He was seen getting into a small, newer model maroon car or small SUV.
