4/1/2013 - When it Absolutely, Positively has to be Stolen Overnight

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a burglary suspect.

 

In February, a loss prevention employee for Federal Express reported to Lufkin Police Department that on at least two occasions that month packages had disappeared from the company`s distribution center on Spence Street in Lufkin.

 

The company`s package tracking process showed that the missing packages had arrived at the Lufkin facility but never left.  This information allowed the company and Lufkin Police Department investigators to narrow their search for the cause or culprit.  When the investigation eliminated employee errors as the cause and determined that packages disappeared during nighttime hours, they knew they were looking for a burglar.

 

The investigators deployed a thermal imaging camera to monitor the likely point of entry into the building and captured video of a suspect scaling the fence of the facility and defeating the locking mechanism of a loading bay door.  A camera inside the building captured a still image of the suspect stealing packages.

 

The still image shows that the suspect is a black male wearing a hooded sweatshirt but investigators need your help to identify him.

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a male thief who stole more than $300 worth of merchandise from a Lufkin business.

 

Just before lunch on October 26th, the thief entered a video game store in Lufkin and browsed the merchandise. 

 

When the store`s clerk was distracted assisting a customer, the thief shoved three shirts and a set of game console cables down the front of his pants.  He then moved to another area of the store, positioning himself near several game console demonstration units on top of a display case. 

 

The thief`s target was a PlayStation3 game console and, after a couple of hesitant attempts, he unplugged it, tucked it under his sweatshirt, and left the store.

 

The images shown at right were taken from the store`s security video and show that the thief was a white male with a mustache and a receding hairline.  He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans; the sweatshirt was a pullover-type and had what appears to be white lettering across its front.
