Man Acts As ATM Repairman To Steal Cash

DATE: April 12, 2014 and April 16, 2014
TIME: 8:00 PM and 8:37 PM
LOCATION: 4302 South Alameda St. and 11201 Leopard St.
OFFENSE: Theft from a Building (PC 31.03 State Jail Felony)
CASE # 1404120142  and 1404170016

On 04/12/2014, at about 8:00 PM Corpus Christi Police Officers responded to 4302 S Alameda, The Stripes Store for a theft. The 32 year old store clerk told officers that a white male, 6`02“, 45-50 years of age, 200-215 lbs, wearing a black/white baseball cap, grey button up shirt and black pants, walked into the store and began servicing the ATM machine. She stated the suspect unlocked the ATM and used a combination to access the safe inside. The clerk became suspicious of the activity because no service was due on the ATM machine and she contacted the store manager. The manager attempted to speak to the suspect by phone; however the suspect took a cassette from inside the safe which contained money. The suspect then placed the cash inside a deposit bag and left the location in a blue Ford Mustang. The person involved in this case is also a possible suspect in another theft involving cash removed from an ATM at the The Stripes Store located at 11201 Leopard St. In this case, a white male wearing a green hooded shirt and jeans entered the store on April 16 at 8:37 PM. He walked toward the ATM, and is then seen walking out of the store with what appears to be the money from the ATM. Anyone who can identify the individual responsible, or has any additional information about this crime should call the Corpus Christi Police Property Crimes Detectives at 886-2841. Anyone who would like to keep their identity secret and still provide information to Detectives should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (8477) or submit the information online at http://www.888TIPS.com. Information provided to Crime Stoppers which results in an arrest may earn the caller a cash reward.
