WOODBURN, Ore. -- Police in Oregon and Southwest Washington are asking for help finding thieves targeting Walmart stores in the region.

The Woodburn Walmart on Stacy Allison Road was hit October 25 and December 1, according to Detective Sgt. Nick Wilson of the Woodburn Police Dept.

"Several individuals are believed to be working together to commit high value thefts of electronic tablet computer devices from Walmart stores," Wilson said Thursday.

”We’re looking at least over $10,000 that we know of…and we don’t believe that they’ve stopped yet,” Wilson added.

One person of interest is 47-year-old Michael Kelso (pictured, above). Two vehicles could be associated with the thefts: A silver Kia Sephia with Oregon license no. 899 ETS and a red Ford Explorer with Oregon license no. 876 CNY.

Anyone with information on the thefts, or anyone recognizing the people pictured, was asked to call Woodburn police at (503) 982-2345 or submit tips here.
