ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - An open garage door set up an easy score for a burglar, who was later caught on camera using the proceeds of his crime.
The stocky burglar raided two cars in a garage left open overnight from Sept. 18 to 19, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office reports. He took a wallet from one car, a purse from another and also got away with prescription sunglasses and an electric razor. The wallet and purse contained several credit cards and a check book.
Although the victims had the cards canceled, the Sheriff's Office says the burglar was able to buy an Xbox accessory at an Englewood Walmart.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot-10 white man with light brown hair and a goatee. In surveillance photos he is wearing tan shorts, a brown T-shirt, a black-and-white baseball cap and sunglasses.
Anyone who recognizes the man or knows anything about the crime is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612.
