Suspect in vehicle burglary.  Described as a black male with a thin beard and mustache.  Last seen wearing a blue tracksuit with a floral pattern.  Suspect left in a silver or grey 4 door sedan with no front license plate.Pflugerville Police seek the public’s assistance to identify a suspect who on December 12, 2018, stole more than $1000 from an elderly man in his upper 60’s who withdrew money from a bank and then put the money in his car. The elderly man reentered the bank and the suspect smashed the driver-side window of the victim’s vehicle and stole the withdrawal. The suspect is described as a young black male in his 20’s with a thin beard and mustache.

Jugging is when a criminal watches for a person using an ATM machine or withdrawing cash at a bank to then rob them of their withdrawal. Sometimes the victim is followed from the bank to their destination. 

The Pflugerville Police Department offers the following recommendations to avoid becoming a victim:

  • Be mindful of your surroundings and of suspicious people when at banks or ATM machines.
  • Do not leave valuables in vehicles, including cash.
  • If making a cash withdrawal, secure the cash in a wallet or purse prior to exiting the bank or store.
  • Do not count cash openly in public areas.
  • If you encounter someone suspicious, re-enter the bank or store and call the police.

Anyone with information about this suspect should call the Criminal Investigation Division Tip Line at 512-990-6731 or email cidtips@pflugervilletx.gov.  Visit the WhoDunIt page at https://www.pflugervilletx.gov/whodunit for other photos of suspects in need of identification.
