Crime Stoppers: Daytime Burglary On Wind Cove Lane

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of a daytime burglar.

On Jan. 11, shortly after 11 a.m., according to investigators, a white male was seen walking around a house on Wind Cove Lane, ringing the front door bell and checking the door knobs. The suspect then walked around the rear of the house where he made entry through a back door, and was then seen leaving on foot through the front door at approximately 11:30 a.m. with an undetermined amount of jewelry (including the victim's engagement ring), but not before being captured on private security video.

The suspect was a white or possibly Hispanic male between 40 to 50 years old, approximately 5'10" tall, and weighing around 200 pounds, with dark receding hair with an apparent bald spot on top.

Detectives believe someone may have some information about the identity of this burglar, and a confidential call could result in a cash reward. 

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 423-698-3333.
