Bruce Taylor is being sought by West Whiteland Township police.

Police said Bruce Taylor purchased a new computer from the K-Mart store in Exton on Dec. 2, paying $423 in cash. A few hours later, Taylor returned to the store and stated that he wanted to return the computer. He received the cash back and left the store. Later, store personnel discovered that the new computer had been replaced with an old laptop, police said.

 Evidence recovered from the computer’s hard drive, as well as interviews with store employees, led to the filing of the charges against Taylor, said police, who are attempting to locate him. Police said his last known address was Newtown Square. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call police at 610-363-0200.
