Brazos County Sheriff's Office Looking For Burglary Suspect Caught On Camera

BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas A brazen home burglar didn't count on something hidden in the yard of a home just south of College Station.

The home is one of six that the Brazos County Sheriff says were hit by the same burglar.

Now they need your help trying to identify the suspect caught on camera.

Neighborhoods around the county are on alert.

A burglar is on the loose in Brazos County striking six homes this month.

On July 1st the family of a home in Nantucket returned home to find their 50 inch TV and other items stolen in broad daylight.

Zanna Bickham lives in the Cove of Nantucket where two Nantucket neighbors were burglarized within a week.

"I still feel very secure and safe in this area. But I guess we will be more aware since we know several have happened close by," she said.

In July two burglaries have happened on Harpers Ferry Road, with others on South Oaks, Indian Lakes Drive, Sara Lane and Highway 30.

Lt. John Pollock of the Brazos County Sheriff's Office believes they are all connected.

"These individuals will commonly knock on the front door of the residence to see if anyone's home," said Pollock.

This man with the baggy pants was spotted at a burglary in the Indian Lakes subdivision, caught looking right at a hidden game camera.

"We've already run this picture around the law enforcement and we've not come up with the exact identify, so we want the public to help us identify this person," said Sheriff Chris Kirk of Brazos County.

Cindy Miller is the Property Manager for Indian Lakes and has sent out e-mails alerting the community, even though crime is rare here.

"They need to be aware of their surroundings, know their neighbors, get to know their neighbors kids, and cars," said Miller.

"I'm certainly glad we have a suspect and we will be aware of looking for someone dressed like that certainly," said Zanna Bickham.

On the lookout for an unwelcomed guest.

A home owner in Indian Lakes tells us her home was broken into and some jewelry stolen even though the security alarm went off.

Sheriff's investigators estimate more than $6,000 worth of property has been stolen so far.
