The University of St. Thomas Police Department is looking for a black man with short hair and a beard suspected of burglarizing two cars on campus Oct. 1 and 2.
The first burglary occurred in the Moran Garage, while the second took place at the intersection of Mt.Vernon and Colquitt streets.
The suspect’s image was caught on the Moran video cameras in the garage, according to the department.
In an email sent to the UST community sent Oct. 3, the UST Police Department wrote that the suspect had been walking up to vehicles and pulling on their handles to see if they were unlocked.
UST Chief of Police H.E. Jenkins wrote that the department believes the suspect “is not looking for items to steal, but is looking for personal information”–household bills, insurance information or ID cards to use for identity theft.
The Police Department encourages all drivers to lock their vehicles, close and secure all windows, and remove any valuables and personal information from their cars when parking, Jenkins added.
Students, faculty and staff with additional information about these crimes or the suspect are asked to call (713) 525-3888.
