SUBJECT: Would-Be Auto-Burglar Recorded in the Act
DATE: June 10, 2016
CASE #: 16-011612
On June 2, 2016 at approximately 10:00 PM, an unknown white male suspect attempted to burglarize a vehicle parked in the driveway of a Kingsport residence in the 2200 block of Lamont Street. The owner had mistakenly left his vehicle unlocked overnight.

The suspect unlawfully entered the vehicle and rummaged around the interior extensively; however, when he was unable to find anything to steal, he left empty-handed.

The incident was captured by home surveillance cameras, and photos taken from that footage have been included in this release. A clip of the actual video has been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below:

Anyone who recognizes this suspect or who may have any additional information which may help solve this case is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
