Police were called to the store about 3 p.m. Aug. 15, after store employees tried to confront someone who was wearing the leafy camouflage outfit.

The person left the store and could not be located, according to the report.

Two days later, police were called to Walmart again after the store reported that a young male suspect wearing camouflage clothing was yelling at customers in the parking lot. The incident happened about 10:30 p.m. Aug. 17. The suspect ran behind the store and was not found.
