Authorities are looking to identify a person of interest who was wearing a NASCAR #3 jacket at Kohl’s Department Store on Tuesday.
The Southern Pines Police Department announced on Facebook they are seeking help from the community in identifying the individual who was in the store on Brucewood Road.
The department asked citizens to contact them if anyone can name the individual wearing the jacket.
“The Southern Pines Police Department is well aware that besides Dale Earnhardt (3), there were eight other drivers in the NASCAR Hall of Fame (Tim Flock, Cotton Owens, Fireball Roberts, Junior Johnson, David Pearson, Cale Yarborough, Buck Baker and Fred Lorenzen) that have driven the #3 car. In total, there have been 82 drivers that have driven in NASCAR races in the #3 car, including Richard Childress, who Austin Dillion is now driving for. We can assure you that all of these 82 drivers have been eliminated from contention in this identification. However, if you do recognize this NASCAR fan, you can call the Southern Pines Police Department at 910-692-70 Earnhardt (3) 1, or our Crime Tip Line 910-69 Earnhardt (3)-4110. Thank you in advance.”
