Longview police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying a burglary suspect.
On March, 21, Officer Alex Chorba was dispatched to 320 E Loop 281 for a vehicle burglary. When Officer Chorba arrived, the victim told him someone had broken the front passenger window of their 2007 Nissan truck and taken several items out of the truck, including her purse.
On March 29, 2012, Officer Nora Cheatham was following up on the case because a credit card taken from the vehicle had been used to purchase items from a kiosk located in the Longview Mall. Officers were able to retrieve video from that location and are attempting to identify a suspect in the case. The suspect is described as a heavy set black male, possibly in his 30's, balding, and has a goatee. If someone has information regarding the identity of this individual they are asked to contact the Longview Police Department at 903-237-1199. If the tipster wishes to remain anonymous they can also contact Gregg County Crimestoppers at 903-236-STOP(7867) or submit a tip online at www.greggcountycrimestoppers.org.
