PREVIOUS: Onslow Co. Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man who is wanted for questioning after being caught on video surveillance footage actively in a vehicle break-in.

Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, OCSO deputies responded to a call reporting a vehicle break-in at the new Circle K on HWY-258 at the NC-53. The store clerk at the time received notice from a customer there was a vehicle that had its window smashed out that was parked in the rear parking lot. Ironically enough for the clerk, the vehicle belonged to the clerk.

 

Store video surveillance captured the photos above of a black male exiting a compact black vehicle that is comparable to a Mazda 6 or a Mazda 3 Sedan and break into the victim’s vehicle. The male, as seen in the photos was wearing a green t-shirt or possibly sweatshirt with rolled sleeves with a red logo on the front, and black or dark gray sweat pants that had a hole on the upper left leg. He was wearing slide-on flip flops and was bald.

Editors Note: Onslow Co. Sheriff’s Office says they are uncertain if the suspect has facial hair. The Onslow Beat did some image manipulation with lighting, you can see what appears to be facial hair or at least a five o’clock shadow. Citizens should keep that in mind when helping OCSO bring justice in this matter, don’t rule it out.

Additionally, in the image captured by the rear of the vehicle, the suspect appears to be holding a cloth of sorts in his hands. Some have taken to social media comments saying this looks like a Home Depot apron, that has not been confirmed or discussed with OCSO as of yet by The Onslow Beat. The Onslow Beat did also take a deeper look into the image with more image manipulation to crop and shift lighting and it appears as a red bandana, “colors”. Look at that slightly altered above.
