Police have identified a suspect in the theft of a large amount of liquor from Phred’s Drug on Oaklawn Avenue in Cranston.

Shane Martin, 39, with previous addresses in Warwick, Cranston and Central Falls, is being sought in connection with the April 12 incident.

Just before 9 p.m. that night, police say the suspect entered the store and selected several bottles of alcohol worth a total of well over $100. The man then concealed the bottles and exited the store without making any attempt to pay, leaving in an unknown direction. It is unclear whether a vehicle was involved.

The suspect was described as clean-cut white male standing 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a short, close-cropped haircut. He was wearing a yellow Gap hooded sweatshirt with black lettering and black and white athletic shorts.

Anyone with information regarding the theft or Martin's whereabouts is asked to contact Cranston police at 401-942-2211, ext. 5147. Detective Lee Sohn is investigating.
