Falls police are looking for a male suspect in connection with a theft in the 1400 block of Ferry Avenue.

A 59-year-old man told officers that he was selling a tablet on the Facebook marketplace and had agreed to complete the transaction to a person with the screen name "Russell Hawkins."

The victim arranged to have "Hawkins" meet him at his home at 8 p.m. Sunday.

When the suspect arrived, he spoke with the victim on the porch of the home and asked to see the tablet. When the victim showed the item to him, the suspect grabbed it and ran away.

He was last seen getting into a brown Oldsmobile and driving away from the scene.
