University Place police were searching Thursday for a man who has been stealing items from cars parked outside homes on Day Island.
The department released surveillance images of the man in hopes someone recognizes him and calls police. Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the man’s arrest and charges filed in the case.
The man stole cameras, GPS units and iPods from at least five vehicles on East Day Island Boulevard early Oct. 29, police reported. He also tried to tamper with a surveillance system but was captured on video instead.
Investigators say the man appears to be white, in his early 20s and about 5 feet 10 with a medium build. He had short, blond or light-brown hair. He wore a dark hooded sweatshirt and a backpack.
Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 253-5 91-5959. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
