Suspect in Southlake burglaries sought

The Southlake Department of Public Safety is asking for help in finding a man who may be involved in as many as eight area burglaries.

A series of incidents involving two homes, six vehicles and a garage were reported between midnight and 6 a.m. March 25 in Southlake's Fox Glen and Coventry neighborhoods.

Shortly afterward, a man used one of the stolen credit cards at a Walmart in Arlington. A security camera captured an image of a white male, believed to be 25-35 years old, wearing glasses, a black baseball cap, blue jeans and a dark shirt. He was last seen driving a dark SUV or crossover vehicle, police said.

In all but one of the burglaries, the homes and vehicles were unlocked. Stolen items included cash, credit cards, small electronics and a car.

Contact detective Karl Moore at kmoore@ci.southlake.tx.us or 817-748-8127, or call Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
