Mountain View Police ask public for help

The Mountain View Police Department last week asked the public’s assistance in identifying a male suspect believed to be responsible for a Nov. 25 burglary.

According to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, the suspect in question forced entry into a workshop and stole various tools and equipment. The suspect is believed to be Hispanic or Asian, in his 20s and wearing a dark, long-sleeved sweatshirt, black shorts, blue tennis shoes and a chain at the time. The suspect also has a distinct circular tattoo, Jaeger said, which police believe may be a Pittsburgh Steelers football logo, on his right calf.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Mountain View Police Department at 903-6395 and reference case number 13-6707. Anonymous tips can be submitted via text at 274637. Tips should include the term “mvtips” in the body of the message.
