The Alabaster Police Department is assisting the Chilton County Sheriff’s Office and Clanton Police Department in locating a suspect who police believe was involved in multiple vehicle break-ins.
According to the Clanton Police department, the department and the Chilton County Sheriff’s Office have been investigating multiple recent vehicle break-ins in the area, and officers believe all of them were committed by the same suspect.
While investigating the usage of the credit cards stolen in the break-ins, police were able to track the suspect to the Lowe’s home improvement store in Alabaster’s Propst Promenade shopping center.
On Sept. 30, the Clanton Police Department released surveillance footage from the Lowe’s store showing the suspect and his vehicle at the store at about 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26.
The images depict a middle-aged man wearing blue jeans, a black shirt and a tan hat. Police believe the suspect left the business’s parking lot at about 11:08 a.m. in a mid-2000s Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck.
“We need our followers help in getting an identity for the suspect so that our detectives and investigators can make an arrest and prevent more of our citizens from becoming victims,” read a post on the Clanton Police Department Facebook page.
Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to contact Clanton police detective Robert Bland at 755-1194 or Chilton County sheriff’s investigator Shane Mayfield at 755-4698. Those with information on the suspect can also contact law enforcement through the Clanton Police Department or the Chilton County Sheriff’s Office Facebook pages.
