Police released Tuesday the surveillance photos of a man accused in a January burglary in hopes of finding him.

On Jan. 14, a residence located near the intersection of North Grand Canyon Drive and West Lone Mountain Road, was burglarized. At approximately 2:30 that afternoon, a man broke into the residence, took items from the home, and left in a vehicle driven by an unidentified female.

The investigation indicated the male had been seen in the same vehicle several days before the residential burglary, and since the burglary, following mail carriers in the area. It is also believed the suspects may be involved in theft from area mailboxes.

The male suspect is described as a white man in his mid to late 20s, standing approximately 5’10” tall and weighing about 170 pounds. He is further described as having a bald or shaved head, and has a full sleeve tattoo on his right arm, and possibly tattoos on his left.

The female suspect who was driving the vehicle can only be described as a Hispanic female in her 20s with brown hair.

The vehicle involved is a mid 2000s Lexus RX330 crossover SUV. The vehicle is silver in color and was last seen with the Nevada license plate of 687 LJR. This plate was later discovered to be stolen and it is unknown if the plate is still on the vehicle.

Anyone with any information about the identity or whereabouts of these suspects or the vehicle is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
