Police say the same man hit a Brownsville department store 3-times in just one week. It's all caught on tape. Now investigators need your help to catch him.
Police say a man in his 20's is targeting the Beall's store off Boca Chica. He's stealing dress shirts. It may not seem like a lot of money, but it definitely adds up with the amount he takes.
Here is surveillance video of the suspect entering the store at 1-PM on May 26th. He grabs 20 dress shirts and runs out of the store. This grab totals around $800. Police say he left in a black Pontiac. At almost the same time of day the suspect comes into the store again four days later, this time grabbing 14 shirts valued around $550. He leaves the store and gets into a white car. Once again for the third time at 8PM on June 2nd the thieve takes 20 shirts totaling around $1,200. In total the thief takes around $2,500 worth of merchandise. Police describe him as 5'3 around 130-pounds between the age of 25 and 30.
Police are asking if you have any information to call crime stoppers at 546-TIPS.
