MARTINEZ, GA (WFXG) -

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office is releasing surveillance photos that may help identify a man who tried to take groceries from a Martinez Kroger. You can see him wheeling a cart loaded with merchandise to the doors of the store on Columbia Road near Washington Road. We're told the merchandise was worth $439.33. The incident happened Saturday afternoon, just after 1:30 p.m.

The sheriff's office says an employee stopped the man in the parking lot. He abandoned the groceries, ran to a tan-colored dump truck and took off.

If you saw the dump truck or know who this man is, please call the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at (706) 541-2800.
