ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The search is on for a man in Albuquerque that police say impersonated a Walmart employee to steal televisions and piñatas.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports the man struck an Albuquerque Walmart the day after the Black Friday shopping rush by dressing in a store employee uniform and using a six-wheeler cart to take his loot.

According to police, the man went into an employee-only area where he took the cart and loaded up two televisions and two piñatas.

Officials say the man then left without paying.

Albuquerque police this week released still images of the suspect from surveillance camera footage.

No arrests have been made.
