Georgia police are looking for Kerry Hammond Jr., 22, who was captured on surveillance video inside the GameStop around 1:20 a.m. April 13, according to WJXT.

Police said Hammond tried to use a bottled water wrapper to obscure his face. However, surveillance video from the store shows the man's face clearly visible behind the see-through bag.
