Home surveillance video could lead to ID of burglar suspect


SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — Police from South Kingstown are sharing video recorded by a home webcam during a breaking-and-entering crime in the hope someone might recognize the person pictured.

The video was recorded in the overnight hours on Sunday, September 11, in the Matunuck area, Det. Lt. Alfred E. Bucco III said Wednesday.

In the 15-minute black and white video that includes sound, a person in a tank top and camouflage-printed cargo shorts enters through an open door, carrying a bag or backpack, and goes to the right side of the screen to remove items from something offscreen. The suspect appears to have his or her hair tied back in a short bun, and is wearing a bandana tied around his or her neck. It’s down below the chin but is in a position to cover the face if it was pulled up.

The person ventures off to the left side of the screen, eventually returning and departing out the door again. Little happens for the rest of the video, but the headlights of passing cars can be seen through a window on the left side of the screen.

Det. Lt. Bucco asks anyone who recognizes the person, or who may have information related to the case, to call the South Kingstown Police Detective Division at (401) 783-3321.
