A thief stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics from the lockers of TCU football players as they practiced last week, police say.

The theft happened about 5:15 p.m. Sept. 11 inside Texas Christian University’s Meyer-Martin Athletic Complex, TCU police Detective Mike McCormack said.

On Monday, TCU police released photographs of a person of interest in the case who was caught on security cameras hanging out near the locker room for about an hour.

“He’d walk to the locker room and if someone came out, he would just turn around and get on his phone,” McCormack said.

The man, who was wearing a backpack, was later caught on camera leaving the locker room and immediately walking out of the main doors, McCormack said.

“He was in and out of there in 10 minutes,” McCormack said. “He knows what he’s doing.”

The same man is a person of interest in a similar theft from the Southern Methodist University football team’s locker room on Sept. 4, McCormack said.

McCormack said it is unknown if the suspect is local or may be targeting schools across the Metroplex or state. Police are notifying other colleges and universities to be on alert.
