Bristol police seek suspect in car thefts

BRISTOL — Bristol police are investigating a series of car break-ins that occurred around dawn on July 16. Police responded to an East Street home shortly after 6 a.m., where a resident reported seeing a man searching through vehicles.
The man left before police arrived, and the resident told police that items had been taken from the resident’s vehicle. Police received a second call from another East Street resident, who also reported that items had been stolen from a vehicle.
Eventually, police heard a total of five complaints from East Street residents about items stolen from cars that morning. Some items that were reported stolen were found near or inside other vehicles, all of which were reportedly unlocked — Bristol Police Chief Kevin Gibbs said the suspect did not force his way into any of the vehicles.
The resident who first called police described the man as between five feet, five inches, and five feet, nine inches tall and weighing between 120 and 140 pounds. The resident said the man had brown hair and wore a bluish-grey sweatshirt and dark green pants.
Gibbs said police believe the thefts may be related to similar thefts from cars on Church and Maple streets that occurred in May. No one has yet been arrested for those incidents.
Police ask anyone with information about these crimes to call Sgt. Randy Crowe at 453-2533.
