Charleston police need the public’s help in identifying two people pictured on a surveillance video over the weekend.

Police are investigating a mo-ped theft from the parking lot of the Walmart on Folly Road.

The photo shows the man police believe is the suspect in this case as well as a woman, who is not a suspect, but who they’d also like to speak to.

On Sunday, a man reported his mo-ped was stolen from the store’s lot. The surveillance video showed a man, approximately 40 years old, walking toward the parking lot where the mo-ped was parked and leaving the lot driving it, according to an incident report.

Police ask anyone with information on the identity of the possible witness or the suspect to contact police at 577-7434.
