Suspect sought after releasing bedbugs in Pennsylvania Walmart

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Police in Central Pennsylvania are looking for the person who tried to infest a Walmart with bedbugs.

A manager at the store in Washington Township found a closed pill bottle with live bugs in it inside a boy's jacket last week.

An employee soon discovered a second closed pill bottle with dead bugs inside in the men's changing rooms.

Several live bugs were also spotted crawling around the same area.

A pest management company was called in to get rid of the parasites.

Police say they sent the bottles to a forensic lab for fingerprint processing.
