Man caught on camera before breaking into home
Sugar Land police and Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers are seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating a suspect in a home break-in.
The incident happened Nov. 23 in the 2700 block of Cotton Stock Drive.
The thief was captured on surveillance camera, looking straight into the lens, before breaking in. Inside the home were a 15-year-old girl and her 14-year-old brother.
According to the Sugar Land Police Department, video cameras “showed a vehicle stop in front of the house at 6:45 p.m. A man wearing a Georgia Tech hoodie was seen ringing a doorbell. When no one answered, he walked to the backyard, smashed a backdoor window and entered the house carrying a bag.”
Upon hearing the noise, the teenage siblings reportedly ran to a closet and hid inside while calling police.
After entering the home, the thief “realized the house was occupied and quickly ran away. Nothing was taken.”
Anyone with information is urged to call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477). Calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and could result in a cash reward.
