Home surveillance video may lead to the arrest of a suspect in a stolen mail case.
Officers with the Salina Police Department are hoping to talk with a motorist who was driving in the 100 block of Shalimar on Wednesday night around 9:17pm who may be able to describe a suspect wanted for rummaging through mailboxes and cars.
Police Sergeant David Villanueva tells KSAL News the footage shows the vehicle’s lights illuminating a very thin male who was wearing a white T-shirt, dark shorts and a dark head cover.
Police believe he is responsible for multiple incidents of rifling through cars and mailboxes in an area south of Wayne, east of Ohio and north of Magnolia on September, 26.
