Toms River police are looking for a man who they say attempted to rob a coffee maker from the local Kohl's store last month.

During the Jan. 6 incident, the suspect was observed by store security on surveillance cameras removing a Keurig coffee maker from the box and attempting to remove the security theft prevention advice, according to police spokesman Ralph Stocco.

He then attempted to leave the store without paying, but dropped the coffee maker and fled when confronted by security officers.

The man then ran north through the parking lot and jumped over the center island fence of Route 37, continuing north on foot, said Stocco.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 30s with short crew cut and blonde hair. On the date of the incident he was wearing brown jacket, red shirt, and black pants. Investigative information developed by police, Stocco said, indicates that the individual shown in the surveillance photo was involved in the theft and the department is asking the public’s assistance in identifying him.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact Detective Roger Hull at 732-349-0150, ext. 1291 or private message the department on Facebook. All information will remain confidential.

yea this guy should just be left go...ya know he actually did not pull the theft off. I think we should also give Bank Robbers a Pass if One: they dont get any money during the Robbery and two: Dont actually use a weapon. WTH ??? How about Attempted murder...if your not successful should you get a pass? How about if the guy attempted to break into your house but never got in should he not be charged....? Really Troll...LOL
