Davis Police seek help identifying man in surveillance video

The Davis Police Department is seeking the public's help in identifying a man in a surveillance video collected the afternoon before two suspects attempted to steal a Target Store's ATM last May.

At 3 a.m. May 22, two men drove a Dodge pickup through the glass doors of a Davis Target, attached a cable to the ATM and attempted to drag it out of the building.

The suspects were unable to dislodge the machine and fled the scene, leaving behind the truck that was later found to have been stolen from a landfill north of Sacramento. Damage to the store cost more than $100,000 in repairs.

After months of investigation, Davis police have released two surveillance videos in hopes that someone may be able to identify a man who they say suspiciously entered and exited a target store about 5:30 p.m. the evening before the early-morning incident.

The video shows what police think to be a white man in his mid-20s wearing a checkered shirt, blue jeans, a baseball cap and sunglasses. The man is not yet a suspect in the case, but a person of interest.

The surveillance videos may be viewed by following these links:

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400.
