SUGAR LAND, TX (KTRK) --An off-duty police officer working security at a car dealership confronted a man with a crowbar after an apparent robbery attempt in early September inside a Sugar Land Chevy dealership. Now, Sugar Land police are asking for the public's help to find that man and another suspect who they say were involved.
Police say when the officer told the man to dropped the crowbar, he did, but then ran from the scene. The officer chased the man, but he got away.
However, surveillance cameras captured images of the suspects at the Classic Chevrolet in the 13000 block of Southwest Freeway. Watch the video in the player above.
Police say surveillance video at the dealership showed the man run from the building and leave in a white, four-door vehicle with a sun roof that was driven by another person.
Police say nothing inside the dealership was missing, but a search of the building identified a damaged exterior door. A backpack was located on the floor near the finance office. It contained pry bars, gloves, a mallet, bolt cutters, cutting blades and three pieces of paper that appeared to be math homework.
The person who ran from the building was a thin black man; about 5 feet 10 inches tall; and wore a purple hoodie, a neon yellow construction vest, white shorts and black/white shoes.
Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
