Help Us Identify Vandalism Suspect

Our community is amazing at providing us tips and helping us identify suspects from video and photos posted on our blog.  Here is another one to test your detective skills.  

On June 5th at about 1:45 AM our suspect approached the CVS store at 600 Front Street.  After discovering the store was closed and the doors were locked, the suspect kicked the door.  The kick resulted in the lower glass pane breaking. 

The incident is caught on video which was eventually turned over to our officer.  Click below to take a look at the video:

Here are a couple of still shots from the video:

The suspect was described by witnesses as a African American male, approximately 20-30 years, Afro style hair, wearing a maroon hoody style sweatshirt and black pants.
