Auburn Police have been called to Haggen Lake Tapps on five occasions since Christmas Day, looking for a man suspected in stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of cigarettes and liquor.

There have been four additional 911 calls since then: two on Jan. 15, one on the 16th, and another Jan. 17.

In each incident, employees either saw the suspect or heard the suspect in the rafters above the ceiling. In each case, officers searched above the false ceiling but came up empty.

If anyone has information on this suspect, please call the police’s tip line at 253-288-7403.
