Police reports show at around 7:30 p.m. on May 5, Bonneville County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Target parking lot on South 25th East to investigate a suspicious vehicle possibly involved in retail theft, according to a news release.

Deputies arrived and made contact with two women sitting in a vehicle and were directed to a male adult that was attempting to walk away from the area. The driver of the vehicle was identified as 40-year-old Camile J. Gamino of Idaho Falls.
