Cortlandt, New York – The New York State Police from the Cortlandt barracks are attempting to identify the man pictured below.  On January 13, 2021, he was reported to have confronted a person shopping in the Mohegan Lake Walmart on east Main Street and accused that patron of stealing a face mask.

During the confrontation, the man posed as Loss Prevention, and ordered the patron to, “Come with me.”  The patron refused and the man lifted his jacket to reveal a holstered handgun with a brown grip.

After the confrontation, the subject departed the store and drove from the area in a gray or light-colored sedan.

Anyone who thinks they can help is asked to please contact the New York State Police at (914) 769-2600.  Please reference 10024316.
