A thief stole eight laptop computers from the Colonial Village Apartments last month, and police are hoping that the public can help catch him.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspect this afternoon. According to a press release, the suspect stole the laptops from the clubhouse, located near the Courthouse Metro station, on two separate occasions.

The Arlington County Police Department’s Burglary Unit is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a burglary suspect captured on a surveillance camera.

On separate occasions, once on March 23rd and again on March 25th, the subject entered the clubhouse of the Colonial Village Apartments and stole laptop computers. A total of eight laptops were stolen from the clubhouse, which is located in the 2100 block of N. 18th Street. The suspect remains at-large.

The subject is described as a black male, slender and tall. The subject walks with a slight limp. During both incidents, he was wearing a black jacket with blue jeans, black boots and a red bandana covering his face. He is known to carry a dark colored Northface backpack.
