The Cheboygan City Police Department is asking for help in identifying a man who stole a cash register from a local Walmart store on July 26th.
The suspect is described as a white male, 45-50 years old, husky build, and appeared to have a bad back. The suspect was wearing a grey t-shirt and grey cargo pants.
