He wore a ball cap with with a decal on the left front edge of the bill, a hooded sweatshirt with a Nike swoosh symbol across the front, a backpack with what appeared to be a Nike swoosh symbol on the right strap and light-colored latex or similar-material gloves, deputies said.
It is the third recent break-in at the grocery store, Pieper said.
