Man who broke into truck on James Island caught on camera

A James Island resident recorded this man breaking into his truck June 28.

A man who broke into a truck on James Island last month probably didn’t realize he was being recorded on a surveillance camera.

Investigators on Monday released some clear photos of him in action and are asking for help identifying him.

A Fort Pemberton Drive resident told Charleston County sheriff’s deputies somebody got into his unlocked truck June 2 and took $350 and a spare key from the glovebox, according to Maj. Jim Brady. On June 28, a man used the spare key to get into the truck again but didn’t find anything of value, Brady said.

This time the intruder was caught on a surveillance camera the resident had set up. Investigators believe it was the same guy. The resident told deputies he was concerned about the suspect’s brazenness.

The guy caught on video is described as being between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds. He was wearing a white hat and a bandana in the video.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mitch Wilson at 308-7320 or leave a tip with Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
