JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police have their eyes peeled for a man who stole a security camera from an ophthalmologists’ office.

An employee with Southern Eye Associates, 601 E. Matthews, reported Monday morning that someone stole a security camera from the outside of their building.

Little did the suspect know, the device captured him arriving in the clinic’s parking lot in a 1990s model red Cadillac Deville, get out and walk up to the camera.

The report described the suspect as a white male, 25-35 years of age, wearing a light-colored T-shirt, blue jeans, a light-colored ball cap, and glasses.

The surveillance video showed the man took off his belt before climbing up on a handrail near the building.

The suspect, according to the initial incident report, then swung the belt over the camera mount and pulled it down from the building. Another camera showed the man break the camera off the bracket then run back to his car with it.

The video clearly showed a pair of work gloves in his back pocket. As he ran back to the car, one of the gloves fell out. Officer Josh Landreth collected the glove and placed it into evidence.

According to the video’s timestamp, the theft occurred sometime Friday night between 11:33 and 11:40.

The employee said they believe the suspect is responsible for a similar theft that occurred previously.

Anyone with information that can help police find the suspect should call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP (7867).
