Southern Pines Police are looking for help identifying a man wanted in connection with motor vehicle breaking and entering cases at Martin Dog Park. The department released surveillance photos on their social media page Wednesday of the suspect inside his vehicle.
The break-ins at the park, located on Commerce Avenue, occurred on Sunday.
According to a witness, “a black male with dreadlocks” was seen “exiting the vehicle” and breaking into the parked cars just after 11 a.m.
Ten minutes later, the suspect’s car was seen in Vass at the 5 Points Pet Resort, and “one purse that was stolen from the Martin Park incident was found in the parking lot.”
If you can identify the suspect or vehicle, please contact the Southern Pines Police Department. They can be reached at 910-692-7031, or you may call the tip line at 910-693-4110. The investigation case number is 2019-01430.
