A woman is also shown in the surveillance video with him, but officers have not identified her.

Sanders is wanted by several other police agencies for drug charges in addition to charges of theft, escape and fleeing and evading, said Det. McDonald.

Best Buy representatives said they think Sanders is responsible for more than 30 different thefts over three years at the stores St. Matthews, Outer Loop and Clarksville locations.
