Sugar Land car and garage thefts caught on tape

SUGAR LAND, TX (KTRK) -- Police are looking for help identifying a man seen on surveillance video while stealing from several homes in Sugar Land.

You can see the thief attempting to open vehicles sitting in driveways in the 3100 block of Red Cliff Drive at about 4am on December 30.

Investigators say he found several vehicles unlocked. One homeowner reported the thief taking cash and electronics from his two unlocked vehicles. "That was THIS fool's fault," said homeowner Pablo Armendariz.

Police say the thief then used garage door remote controls to enter several garages, including that at Armendariz's home. A neighbor told police the suspect actually entered their home while they were sleeping and stole several items.

Investigators urge you to lock your vehicles and avoid any false sense of security, even though Sugar Land is consistently ranked one of the safest cities in the country. "I think sometimes people don't realize that crime can happen anywhere, even in the safest city, " said Doug Adolph, spokesperson for the city of Sugar Land.

If you recognize the thief in the surveillance video you can contact Sugar Land Police at 281-275-2540 or you can contact Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS. There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction. null
