On February 21, 2023, at 5:29 p.m., two white males entered the Mast General Store located at 630 W. King Street.

He was observed walking to a far corner of the sales floor where he conceals these two items in his pockets. He then selected a Patagonia brand trucker hat, removed the price tags, and placed the hat on his head. The second male wearing a black Appalachian State sweatshirt and gray sweatpants stole a black Carhartt brand beanie from the display and placed it on his head. Both males exit the business wearing the stolen headwear and concealing the other items.
