Mobile Police need your help finding a man, they say, stole a laptop at gunpoint.

Last month, a woman offered her laptop for sale on a popular social media market site. According to investigators, William Jacob Cauthen reached out to her, offering to buy it, police say. They agreed to meet at the Lowes on Rangeline Road to complete the deal. But here's where the "steal" comes in: the victim told police as she was taking the laptop out of the trunk of her car, Cauthen pulled a gun on her, snatched the laptop, and disappeared.
