Arlington County Police are looking for a serial office burglar who’s suspected of taking items from “numerous” offices along Arlington’s Metro corridors.

Police say the images above are from a burglary this month on the 2300 block of Clarendon Blvd in Courthouse, steps from county government headquarters and just a couple of blocks from police headquarters.

From an ACPD press release:

The Arlington County Police Department’s Burglary/Larceny Unit is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a suspect involved in numerous office burglaries in the metro-accessible corridors of Arlington County to include an early July 2015 incident in the Courthouse area.

The suspect forced entry into an office suite located in the 2300 block of Clarendon Boulevard, at 7:40 a.m. on July 7, 2015. The lone suspect was captured on surveillance video and later entered a suite where he stole an unsecured laptop computer. He then placed the laptop into a black and blue colored backpack before leaving the scene.

The subject is described as a black male approximately 5’11” – 6′ tall, weighing 190 pounds with a large build. In several incidents, it appears that the suspect is carrying a small towel in or on his hand.

The suspect targets vulnerable office suites in the early morning hours as employees are beginning to arrive or in the later afternoon after most employees have gone for the day. He appears to target mainly electronic devices.

If anyone has information on the identity and/or whereabouts of this individual, please contact Detective James Stone of the Arlington County Police Department’s Burglary/Larceny Unit at 703.228.4245 or at [email protected] To report information anonymously, contact the Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866.411.TIPS (8477).
