Roanoke County Police identified the man on surveillance video as Brandon Flowers of Vinton.

He turned himself in to authorities Friday evening.  He's being held in the Roanoke County/Salem Jail without bond.

Authorities are looking for a man who they say stole a pair of $2,500 binoculars from the Gander Mountain store in Roanoke County on Thursday.

It happened around 11:00.

Store surveillance footage shows a man in his mid 20's to mid 30's taking the binoculars off a display shelf and placing and hiding them in his clothes before leaving the store.

The man appeared to be balding and to have a partial thin beard.

He was wearing blue jeans and light colored shirt with what appears to be pink horizontal stripes under a dark colored jacket.
