NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Suspect Sought in Two Burglaries to Kingsport Pavilion Businesses
DATE: August 20, 2015
CASE #: 15-017763
GENERAL NARRATIVE
During the nighttime hours of August 14, 2015 an unknown suspect was captured on surveillance video during a burglary of Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, located at 2600 East Stone Drive, in the Kingsport Pavilion Shopping Complex.

Another burglary was reported the same night to the nearby Maurice’s clothing store, located at 2626 East Stone Drive in the same shopping complex. The two burglaries are believed to be related, and the same suspect is being sought in both cases.

While detectives are still attempting to determine what, if anything, was stolen from Which Wich, an undisclosed amount of cash and checks were stolen from Maurice’s.

A photo of the suspect taken from surveillance video has been included in this release. An actual clip of the video footage has been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below:
