Stop Thief! Mohawk thief in Southeast Shelby County

We're hoping this guy's hairdo -- will do him in.

The Action News 5 Scam Cam captured him lifting three high-ticket items at a Southeast Shelby County department store:

* $396 Dyson vacuum cleaner (YOU'RE STUCK:  $5.74 on every Dyson to cover theft losses)

* $150 Harrier A/C window unit (YOU'RE STUCK:  $2.17 on every Harrier to cover theft losses)

* $725 Dell Computer (YOU'RE STUCK:  $10.51 on every Dell to cover theft losses)

But with a big build, bright yellow shirt and that Mohawk, dude's doing a lot to draw attention to himself.

"He stood out on camera with a Mohawk like that," says Det. Dee Bowling of the Shelby County Sheriff's ALERT Unit (Area Law Enforcement & Retailers Team).  "I'm sure someone saw him."

Plus he's seen on the Scam Cam waving his arms all over the place to test the lawn & garden center's exit doors.

Rookie.

We call him "Mohawk."  Know his real name?
