JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are searching for a man who has being stealing surveillance cameras from area businesses.

On Monday, the manager of Harp’s reported someone stole a surveillance camera from the store, located at 2005 Harrisburg Rd.

The theft happened just before 10 p.m. Nov. 22.

According to the incident report, a white male wearing brown overalls and a camouflage shirt walking with a bicycle was caught on camera walking up to the store.

The man pulled out a tennis shoe with a rope tied around it and began throwing the shoe at the surveillance camera on the southwest side of the store, the report stated.

The suspect eventually climbed on top of a dumpster and pulled the camera down using the shoe and rope, pulling out multiple wires to the store’s phone system in the process.

After taking the camera, the suspect attempted to pull down another camera just a few feet away.

When he was unable to do so, the man walked away from the store heading west toward Main Street.

On Tuesday, an employee at Southern Eye Associates, 601 E. Matthews, reported someone pulled a surveillance camera off their building.

The suspect, described as a white male wearing blue jeans and a camouflage jacket, approached from the south side of the building, took a camera off the east wall and hid it in his clothing.

The man was last seen walking south.
