Durham — Police are searching for a serial pig cooker thief who has been stealing them from backyards, driveways and even a church since late April.
The most recent theft occurred May 23 in East Durham where someone took a large, $4,000 pig cooker from the driveway of a home off Mineral Springs Road, Kammie Michael, a Durham police spokeswoman reported on Friday night.
Four other cookers, including two from a church, were reported stolen the month before, Michael stated in a press release. Investigators still have not determined who in April took two large pig cookers that were chained to the back of a building in the 3900 block of South Alston Avenue.
Two more cookers on a trailer that month were reported stolen from Mount Bethel Presbyterian Church. The thieves stole the cookers and the trailer, police reported.
Police think they have a suspect and a description of the vehicle that may have been involved in the thefts. Investigators say the man was driving what appeared to be a black, 1995-2005 Chevrolet Silverado truck.
