Utica Police are looking for a man who they say recently stole a flat-screen TV from a downstairs room at a local hotel.
Police say the Econolodge burglary in North Utica is now handled by the UPD’s burglary unit, according to Sgt. Mike Curley.
“The case has been traced to our burglary unit which is still investigating. No leads have so far been revealed based on the video, but it is still a very open investigation and I hope that a public broadcast will help generate something, ”Curley said.
Hotel co-owner Rakesh “Rock” Patel told WIBX that the black man entered the hotel and obtained the key to one of the downstairs rooms that faced a row of shrubs on the side of the building. He said the man thought the man had picked up the television, wrapped it in a sheet from the room, and slipped it out the window and onto the floor. He said the man then drove a blue Subaru past the building where he grabbed the TV and exited the property.
Patel said the burglary was caught on security camera footage. He said the license plate can be seen in the video, but the original condition of the plate is unclear. He hopes that after watching the video, someone will have information leading to the arrest of the man.
Police say if anyone has any information they can contact the UPD’s burglary unit at 315-223-3510. Tips can also be sent anonymously to Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers at 1-866-730-8477.
