Video captures images of car burglary suspect
A surveillance tape has surfaced of one person responsible for a recent rash of vehicle burglaries in the Guthrie area. Police suspect there could be more.
A video was published to YouTube from a residences home on Mockingbird Road in hopes of someone recognizing the person. See video below.
A white male, who appears to be a teenager, is seen walking between two vehicles parked in a drive way Wednesday morning at 4:58 a.m. However, the burglar was coming back for his second robbery after striking the same residence at 4:37 a.m.
Not seen in the camera angle is a third car to the left where the burglar made off with a purse and tote bag. According to the homeowner, the items were found in the neighborhood in a secluded area later that day when conducting a search. Missing from the items was $1050 that was being saved for a Girl Scout trip to Savannah, GA this summer.
In the video, the suspect’s behavior suggests he saw the resident’s camera placement as he hikes his shirt over his head.
The Guthrie Police Department shared their message via social media, “we know the burglars are on foot as well as mobile in a vehicle. So if you see vehicles or people on foot that you don’t normally see in your neighborhood please call the PD or the Sheriffs office.”
The police department is warning all citizens to lock their vehicles.
“We would again like to remind residence of Guthrie as well as Logan County to lock your vehicles and or take all items of value into your home.”
