Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are searching for an auto theft suspect who attempted a break-in at a Savannah business with the stolen vehicle. 

Officials say that while patrolling an apartment complex on Caroline Drive Saturday, Metro officers recovered a white Ford Econoline van reported stolen by Dynamic Care Transportation at approximately 6 a.m. April 28.

Surveillance footage linked the van to an attempted break-in at a Cricket Mobile store on the 7900 block of Abercorn Street on April 27 at 11:27 p.m. 

Detectives are investigating whether the suspect is tied to three additional commercial burglaries on Savannah's southside during the late-night hours of April 27 into April 28, according to SCMPD.   

The suspect is described as a black male with a slender build and standing about 5-6 to 5-8. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
