Police seek help identifying Raleigh burglary suspect

From staff reportsOctober 7, 2013 

— Raleigh police cannot put a name to a face, and they are appealing to the public to help them identify a man seen in a security-camera photo and wanted in connection with two minor burglaries from garages.

The crimes involved were not major, but Raleigh police have not figured out who their suspect is and are asking the public's help in identifying him.

Police distributed a security-camera photo of the man over the weekend, saying they had been unable to put a name to him since the July 18 thefts.

The man is believed to have taken two leaf blowers from two open garages, one on Mountain Ash Court and one on Crisfield Court.

While the thefts did not involve breaking in, they still are considered to be burglary under state law.

Police asked that anyone with information that might help them identify the man call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-HELP (4357) or visit www.raleighcrimestoppers.org for text and e-mail reporting options.

CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for tips that help solves cases.
