Suspect in Panda Costume Steals Airsoft Rifle From Store

Police in Vermont are looking for a suspect they say stole an airsoft rifle from a store while wearing a panda costume. 

The theft happened Monday at the Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Williston around 8:30 p.m. 

Store employees say the suspect grabbed the rifle and fled the store. They saw him earlier in the day without the panda costume. He carried around the rifle before putting it down, saying he would return late for it.
