Police Need Help Identifying Burglary Suspect

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a burglary suspect who broke into Schatz and Krum Automotive (8460 Belvedere Avenue). He got away with approximately $30,000 worth of specialty tools.

On February 13, 2009, the suspect broke the window of a vacant business next door to Schatz and Krum Automotive. Another suspect pulled up to the back of the vacant business with a U-Haul truck. The suspects then cut through the wall and entered the automotive repair shop. They loaded up the U-Haul truck and got away with approximately $30,000 work of specialty tools.

Surveillance footage reveals the suspect arriving in a gray 96-98 Chevrolet Z-71 pick-up truck with a lumber rack on the back. The suspect appears to be a White male adult, wearing a black jacket, grey pants and white shoes. He had short dark hair with a receding hairline.

The U-Haul truck was described as having New Hampshire State plates and a distinctive graphic on the side (see attached). A description of the U-Haul driver is not available.

Photos of the suspect and vehicles are attached.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or (800) AA-Crime. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
