BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Erie County Sheriffs Office is seeking help identifying a male who took twenty-three books from a Clarence Barnes and Noble store.

Deputies say, on February 17th the store's manager observed a short white male with dark glasses walk past all points of purchase and out into the parking lot with a shopping basket of merchandise worth over $600. When confronted by store employees, the subject left in a green hatch-back style vehicle and traveled north on Transit Road.

Deputies secured store surveillance video and are now seeking the public's help in identifying the individual. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 716-858-2903.
