Can you identify this guy? He walked on the west side of a business located at 434 Avenue C SW and jumped once, twice, three times… wait, four times and removed a light fixture from the overhang on the outside of the building. (He really wanted that light fixture.) He then walked around the front of the business and exited the area on foot. The male was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a square logo on the front. Recognize him? Let us know. Contact Detective Chapnick at 863-401-2256.
