CLEVELAND – With all the snow piling up on our driveways, sidewalks and steps, it was almost bound to happen: someone stealing a snow blower. But the suspect didn’t know that a nearby video camera was rolling when he stole it.

The man in this picture allegedly entered an unlocked garage in the 2400 block of West 7th and left with the snow blower. A neighbor’s video camera caught this view of him, and now Second District detectives are asking anyone who recognizes him to contact them.

If you think you know this person, please contact Detective Janet Murphy at 216-623-5218 or e-mail at
