Burglary suspect caught on tape

— A rash of burglaries may be the work of an unidentified man who was caught on film by a downtown surveillance camera, a city police officer said Friday.

Police believe a man filmed by a surveillance camera outside the Overland Sheepskin Com-

pany stole from the store and committed four burglaries in December.

“All of the thefts have been small,” Steamboat Springs Detective Dave Kleiber said. “It is the burglaries we are concerned with.”

The suspect, who allegedly stole two sheepskin rugs and a wooden dog from the leather company, appears on camera as a white male with black hair and possibly light facial hair.

The man wears wire-rimmed glasses and was last seen wearing khaki pants, black athletic shoes and a black or navy hooded parka.

Along with the theft, police believe the suspect committed three burglaries that occurred at businesses in Sundance Plaza and at a business at the complex located at the intersection of Seventh Street and Lincoln Avenue.

In the three burglaries that occurred at Sundance Plaza, money was stolen from cash registers.

Kleiber said the thief did not get away with a substantial amount of cash. For the burglary that occurred downtown, snowboards and a small amount of money were stolen, Kleiber said.

Entry for each of the burglaries was gained by breaking a window, Kleiber said.

“We are hoping we can bring closure to these cases,” he
