For months someone has been hauling away thousands of dollars worth of scrap metal from area businesses. Police had a few leads before and now they have a picture of a man and video of the car they believe he's driving.
The picture of the suspect stealing scrap at Sadoff Iron & Metal near 49th & F Streets in Omaha is from August.. OPD detectives believe he is driving a silver four door sedan and is likely connected to other crimes involving scrap metal and copper thefts.
If you have information call 402-444-7867 and remember, you can remain anonymous and still receive a cash reward.
Another string of burglaries involves stores in a Ralston strip mall and many others in the area around 84th & Park Drive. Wendy Fletcher from It's All About Bees told us the damage to her store could have been worse. "We lost a couple of hundred dollars at the most and there wasn't a ton of damage other than where he threw the rock through the glass door," said Fletcher.
They have added security and so has the owner of the strip mall after a number of small businesses were hit. Surveillance cameras are now visible around the complex.
