Help Berrien County authorities track down burglar

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –We have surveillance tape of man who stole copper and air conditioners from a Berrien County business.

The owners think the same guy broke in three times. Authorities need your help to find him.

You can bet this man didn't plan on getting face time after he burglarized Spires A/C and Electric.

"Oh wow, you know, I couldn't believe we got him on tape," said Stan Spires.

Stan Spires says over the last month his business has been broken into three times.

"It's hard to sleep worrying someone's going to just walk off with everything you worked hard for and sacrificed for," said Spires.

This video shows the thief during the second break-in on August 10 when he got away with hundreds of dollars in copper. He got in through a window. A week before that spires believes the same man stole used air conditioning units.

The business owners have a warning for burglars. If you steal from them, you'll be caught on tape like this guy.

"Maybe he'll turn himself in," said Spires.

The hard working family estimates the damages and stolen property is equal to about three thousand dollars. But despite what they've lost, the family just wants this man brought to justice.

Berrien County authorities say the man is black, could have a mustache, slender, and tattoos on his left arm. If you know who he is or where he might be, call the sheriff's department at (229) 686-7071.
