ID sought in theft from A-1 Storage on Douglas Ave.

On a few occasions over the past week, subjects have been entering the A-1 Storage on Douglas Ave. Several vintage gas station signs have been stolen. Attached is a photo of the suspect, and one of the signs that were stolen. Although the picture quality is low, the suspect is wearing a dark colored hoodie (the night vision makes the color lighter). There are designs on the front and back of the hoodie. The suspect came from Sherman Park, and may be a resident.

Anyone with information to the thefts and trespass at A-1 Storage can contact either Ofc. Netter or Lawhorn. We are still working with Metro Housing in getting additional video.
