Suspected serial burglar seen on surveillance video
Police responded to a criminal trespass on April 15 at the Center for Women`s Health, 7619 Branford Place. A man cleaning an office said he heard a scratching sound at one of the doors. He said the door suddenly opened, and a man entered the office holding two large screwdrivers. He was last seen running away.
He described the intruder as a frail-looking white or Hispanic man in his 50s or 60s. He was wearing blue jeans, a hat and possibly a light blue shirt. He spoke in broken English, had some stubble and was not clean shaven.
Detectives later located video of the man. Police believe the suspect was also involved in similar crimes dating back to December. The man often wears a fedora style hat and enters the businesses while the cleaning crews are still working during the evening. Other related cases include the following:
* On March 8, police responded to a theft at Koudelka Health Center, 15200 Southwest Freeway. An employee said furniture was out of place and cash was missing from a file cabinet when she arrived for work in the morning.
* Police responded to a burglary at Skin Cancer Specialist, 17510 Grand Parkway, on Dec. 31. The office manager said someone went through office cabinets and took money from a cash box.
* On Feb. 25, police were dispatched to Women`s Specialist of Sugar Land, 16659 Southwest Freeway, for a burglary. An employee said she arrived to work and noticed locked doors were open and a bank bag was missing from inside a desk.
