Louisville Metro Police asking for public's help to find suspect in east end vehicle break-ins

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police are asking for the public's help to identify and locate a man suspected in a number of vehicle break-ins in Louisville's east end.

According to a news release, the suspect, who is pictured at right, is accused of breaking into vehicles, stealing credit cards and using the stolen credit cards at various businesses in Louisville and Indiana.

Police say the suspect has broken into vehicles in the Lyndon area, including locations such as A.B. Sawyer Park, the Lyndon baseball fields, the Northeast YMCA, E.P. Tom Sawyer Park, and other locations.

He is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, between 5'-10" and 6'-0" tall, weighing 190-210 pounds, with a "very noticeable" tattoo on his left forearm. He has also been seen driving a black Dodge Durango that police believe could be a 1999 model.

Police have also released photos of a woman they say may have been with the man.

Louisville resident Stacie Sanders had her vehicle broken into last year at the Lyndon baseball fields.

"Nothing was taken but you can tell that everything was ransacked inside the car. Luckily, we don't keep out personal belongings in the car," Sanders told WDRB.

She frequents the park for sporting events and says she keeps her purse on her at all times.

At Tom Sawyer Park, WDRB found cars with windows cracked and purses in plain sight.

Rachael Sheldon said at the park, it's inconvenient to carry your purse with you, so she suggested hiding it.

"If I have anyvaluabless, I just cover them up with other clothes like if I have a jacket or something or I'll put it under my seat or something like that just so people wouldn't even know I have anything worth stealing," said Sheldon.

Anyone with information on the suspect's identity or whereabouts is asked to call police anonymous tipline at (502) 574-LMPD.
