From the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office:
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is asking the public for help identifying a man on surveillance video entering a private condominium and trying to break into cars.
In the early morning hours of Monday, September 6, the suspect tried to kick in an entry door to the Siesta Gulf View Condominiums before gaining access to the garage area somehow. He tried several door handles before breaking into an unlocked Toyota Camry, ransacking the vehicle and stealing about $10 in loose change. He left the parking garage several hours later.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s with close cropped light brown hair and tattoos on both arms. He wore a dark shirt in the parking garage but took it off and had it over his shoulder when he is seen exiting the elevator.
