Tyler Police Need Help Locating "Suspicious Person"

The Tyler Police Department says a "suspicious person" in East Texas is going around pretending to need help, and authorities need your assistance locating him.   Last night, Tyler police received a call from Super Wal-Mart on Highway 64 that a female was in labor in a vehicle. When EMS arrived, they discovered it was a white male pretending to be a female in labor.   Police say the man claimed to be pregnant, and asked for help from a woman passing by.

The same type of incident was reported Tuesday night at the Super Wal-Mart in Lindale. The man drove off last night before police got there.   The man's vehicle is described as a silver, 1992, two-door, Ford Thunderbird. The license plate number is 173HYT. If you have any information call Tyler police.
