JPD searching for persistent burglar

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A burglar apparently believes if at first, you don’t succeed; try, try again.

Sometime between the hours of 4 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday, someone broke into Arkids Pediatric Day Center, 3100 Apache Dr., through a side window.

Once inside, the crook went from room to room, collecting various computers and electronic equipment, and piled them in a tote near the window.

Before loading up the items and taking off, something must have “spooked them” and they left the loot behind, according to the incident report.

Nearly 24 hours later Jonesboro police were called back to the business.

Someone reportedly entered through the same window but this time, they did not leave empty-handed.

According to the report, the thieves stole multiple electronics, including a computer tower, two keyboards, and a 32” television.

One clue that might help police solve these break-ins happened about a block away and a few minutes earlier.

A man was caught on camera at Danny Grubbs's medical office, 3202 Methodist, stealing the surveillance camera.

The suspect, described as a white male with a goatee, walked up to the camera and cut it down, according to a third incident report.

Anyone with information on any of these cases is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP (7867).
