SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Searching for Suspect Who Burgled Landscaping Truck
DATE: August 23, 2018
CASE #: 18-022626
On August 5, 2018 at approximately 11:45 AM, a landscaping crew was working at Saint Dominic Catholic School, located at 1474 East Center Street. While they were working, an unidentified suspect unlawfully entered their company truck and stole a Stihl string trimmer (weed eater) and a pair of 3M hearing protection ear muffs. The total value of the stolen items was approximately $500.

Upon reviewing school surveillance video footage, it was determined that the suspect was a white male with multiple tattoos who was wearing a red t-shirt, shorts, and a ball cap. He fled the scene carrying the stolen property while riding a bicycle up Crescent Street toward Watauga Street.

A photo of the suspect, taken from that footage, has been included in this release. Anyone who recognizes him is asked to contact the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
