Vehicle Burglary - Gas Syphoning

On August 15 at 1:40am, the suspect backed into a parking space at 830 N Alma School Road. The suspect connected an apparatus with attached hose line enabling him to syphon gas from the victim's vehicle. The suspect appeared to be pretending to reorganize equipment in his own vehicle as a cover until the gas syphoning was complete.

The suspect is described as a White male, approximately 40 years of age, 6'00" tall, 180 pounds, with thin to medium build, dark hair.  He was wearing a light colored T-shirt, jeans and light colored tennis shoes with dark laces.

His vehicle is described as a two-toned white body and gray bottom, late 90s model, Dodge Ram 1500, single cab, with snug fit camper shell. The camper shell had storage compartments that opened on the passenger side. The camper shell also appeared to have a small ride on lawn mower or go-cart tied down to the roof.

**Note: there was also a gas syphoning of 75 gallons of diesel fuel that occurred in the 900 block of N Riverview on September 30.
