BRISTOL, TN (WJHL) - The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office is on the lookout for a man who stole a purse from a car in a Blountville business parking lot and tried to use a debit card at a nearby Walmart.

Surveillance cameras caught the man as he unsuccessfully tried to use the card.

A witness said he was the same man who earlier was pounding on locked doors at Capital Meats, terrifying a woman working inside.

"We're not sure why he was attempting to get into the office to begin with," said Leslie Earhart, Carter County Sheriff's Office.   "If he did get inside, we're not sure what he planned to do.   So we would like to identify this suspect as soon as possible."

Earhart said the man also tried to use the debit card at Murphy Oil, a gas station near Walmart in Bristol.

If you recognize Monday's Most Wanted, call the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office at 423-279-7500 x. 249.
