The Menomonee Falls Police Department has requested the public's help in a theft investigation after a suspect allegedly stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a business.

Police said an unknown male suspect walked out of Neu's Building Center on Feb. 4 without paying for $2,900 worth of Milwaukee brand power tools.

The suspect fled in a silver Ford Taurus with Wisconsin license plates. Those plates -- 480-ZXG -- did not match the vehicle, according to police. The vehicle has minor damage to the passenger-side rear bumper.
