A man police say is connected to several thefts is on the loose.

Cops need your help catching him.

It’s our Crime of the Week.

Corpus Christi Police have just released surveillance video taken from a store back on May 3, 2019.

The video shows a Hispanic man walk into a store and steal a tool set.

 

When an employee with loss prevention tried to stop him, we’re told he pulled out a handgun and threatened the employee.

The suspect left the store without paying for the tool set and got into a full-size SUV with dark tinted windows.

 

He is described as a Hispanic male who is described as between 18-25 years old, approximately 5’10, weighing approximately 140-150 pounds.

Investigators believed the man is connected to other thefts.

If you can identify the theft suspect, or have any additional information about this armed robbery, call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS.

Crime Stoppers guarantees to keep your identity secret and if the information leads to an arrest, it could earn you up to $2,500.
