Surveillance Video Shows Suspect in La Jolla Vehicle Burglary

The thief used credit cards from the victim's stolen purse to make purchases at stores in La Jolla and Oceanside.

Investigators are seeking the public's help in identifying a man suspected of vehicle burglary and vandalism in connection with an incident two months ago at the Coggan Family Aguatic Complex in La Jolla. There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case.

San Diego County Crime Stoppers released footage from a surveillance video taken about 4:45 p.m. Oct. 16 that shows the suspect moving his car and getting out of it at the village aquatic center. Another segment of footage shows him leaving.

The unidentified man stole a purse from a car in the swim facility's parking lot located at the corner of Fay Avenue and Nautilus Street by smashing the vehicle's rear window. Authorities say he attempted to burglarize a second vehicle, but only succeeded in damaging the car's window. 

The thief used credit cards from the victim's stolen purse to make purchases at stores in La Jolla and Oceanside. 

Anyone with information about this case should contact San Diego Police Detective Gregg Goodman at 619-531-552-1733.
