Tarrant County’s 10 Most Wanted Criminals, July 31
Southlake police asked for help Tuesday to identify a man accused of stealing sunglasses from a store on July 30, and he apparently brought along his family.
Authorities on Tuesday released several photos from a store surveillance camera in hope that someone would recognize him and contact police.
Detectives have blurred the faces of the woman and a girl in the photos because they were not sure if they were involved in the thefts.
The Oakleys were stolen shortly before 1:30 p.m. on July 30 at the Sunglass Hut, 421 Grand Avenue East in Southlake.
A store inventory indicated one pair of sunglasses valued at $166 were stolen, but authorities viewed store surveillance video and it showed the suspect may have taken three.
The suspect is described as a white man in his late 30s or early 40s, about 6 feet tall, with facial hair.
The man tried on several sunglasses, watched the clerks and tossed his wallet from hand to hand. Southlake police describe that as a diversionary tactic.
At some point, the suspect picked up a pair of Oakleys and he’s accused of shoving them in his pocket.
The theft is a Class B misdemeanor.
