East Texas thief on the loose

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas thief is on the loose. Tuesday morning, a man walked into Larry Lot Interiors and walked out with more than one hundred dollars in cash.   

Employees tell us they were working in the back of the store and did not see the man come inside. When they found their cash register drawer open and all of the money missing, they immediately checked their surveillance video. The video captures a black male wondering through the store. 

"We were very lucky that we have all of these cameras because we have a clear picture of him so hopefully with your help we will be able to find out who it is," said the store's designer Cheri Rome. 

"I wasn't here this morning when any of this happened. I was in Longview at a client's house, but I was scared for the girls here. We are all going to be on the watch for anything suspicious going on in this neighborhood," owner Larry Lott told us. 

Lott said he is going to beef up security and has already ordered more security cameras.
