Investigators have been told a man entered a Hume Highway store just before 4pm on Sunday, 26 July.
The man asked a staff member to select a Paslode nail gun before continuing to further browse throughout the store.
He then went to the self-serve checkout and paid for items without scanning the nail gun, worth approximately $900.
When leaving the store, a staff member challenged him to pay for the nail gun however he ignored them and exited the store.
He was seen leaving the car park in a vehicle, possibly a silver Ford Falcon.
He’s perceived to be of Islander appearance, with a solid build and aged in his mid-30s.
He had a tribal tattoo on his right forearm and tattoo writing on his left forearm.
