EL CENTRO, CA- Police need your help identifying a burglar.
The El Centro Police Department says the suspect was caught on tape breaking into an automobile parts store in the 1100 block of S. McCullon on October 26.
They say the surveillance video shows him breaking apart the counter to get to the cash register. Once the suspect removed the register from the store, he exited through the front door.
ECPD says the stolen cash register was found outside a medical office in the 2100 block of S. Ross three days later.
Police say surveillance video from the medical office shows a vehicle, believed to be a dark colored Nissan or Toyota with a faded hood enter the parking lot. They say the burglary suspect then exited the car and removed the cash register. He was then seen smashing the cash register against the ground, breaking it open, grabbing the money and then driving away.
"We are looking to the public to help us identify this burglar", said Commander Jeff Mason. "We have a significant amount of physical evidence, but we do not know who the suspect is", said Mason.
Anyone with information on the suspect or the vehicle is encouraged to call Detective Dorian Meneses at 760-337-4507. Those wishing to remain anonymous may do so.
