Serial pig cooker thief wanted in Durham

July 7, 2013 

— 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.
