CREEDMOOR — Police are looking for the man they say was caught on security camera video breaking into a parked minivan to steal its stereo.
The footage shows the man smashing the driver’s-side window of a 2002 Honda Odyssey with “an unknown object,” getting in and removing the car radio, Creedmoor officials said, announcing a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest and conviction.
The Honda was parked in back of at a car-repair shop on North Durham Avenue, and the incident happened at about 6 a.m. on April 9.
The suspect arrived in a dark-colored minivan of his own, possibly also a Honda Odyssey, and left in it at 6:16 a.m., headed west on Lake Road toward Butner, authorities said.
In the video, he appeared to be “a medium- to large-framed black male wearing a white short-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a ball cap,” they said.
