PICTURE GOES VIRAL of Suspicious Man After Several Mid-Missouri Bulk Cell Phone Purchases
Early Saturday morning two “foreign speaking” men set off alarms after they entered the local Walmart store in Lebanon, Missouri and purchased 60 cellphones. The purchase was made around 4 AM in the morning. Police were called but released the men saying they didn’t have a legal reason to detain them.
The Macon County Sheriff’s office is investigating a second suspicious purchase of dozens of cellphones at the Columbia Walmart on Conley Road.
A third suspicious purchase was made at a Walmart in Macon, Missouri.
On Thursday a fourth Walmart in Jefferson City in mid-Missouri reported another bulk cell phone purchase.
** On Friday The Gateway Pundit reported that dozens of propane tanks were recently stolen near Kansas City.
Two more Walmarts reported bulk cell phone purchases by Friday night.
Locals are concerned because the man was reportedly acting erratically.
A picture from a trail camera in Madison County, Mo. is spreading like wildfire in the Heartland.
The picture shows a man walking in the woods near rural Fredericktown.
There wouldn’t be anything too unusual about it, but it has some people concerned. In light of recent cell phone purchases in the area that are being investigated by the FBI as suspicious, they are jumping to conclusions.
Many people are talking about it because they don’t know who the man is.
“I didn’t know who the guy was, but I didn’t think anything too bad, I thought it just a guy on the side of the highway,” John Wooldridge said.
Wooldridge said he believes he had an encounter with the man caught on this trail camera outside of Fredericktown.
“I was just leaving the house and seen a man cross the highway, so I kind of watched him because I figured he was an hitchhiker,” he said.
That’s when Wooldridge said the man ran across the highway and into the woods headed towards his house. Wooldridge said he went to go figure out why
“He came out of the woods, screaming arms wailing, making a fist just screaming,” he said.
Wooldridge called police who patrolled the area, but didn’t see him again.
