Sheriffs on the lookout for power-tools thief

Investigators are asking the public for help in finding a suspect in an early-morning break-in last month at the Solana Beach & Tennis Club.

In the Jan. 12 incident, a suspect broke into the condo community’s underground parking garage at around 5:30 a.m., spray-painted the security cameras and forced his way into a storage cage from which he took $790 worth of power tools.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department describes the suspect as a Hispanic male, 25 to 35 years old and a medium build. He was wearing a black sweatshirt, a dark baseball cap adorned with a circle-shaped logo, blue jeans and black-and-white shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the North Coastal Patrol Station at 760-966-3500.
