Cedar City Police Department issued information on its Facebook page Friday asking the public for help in finding a white male with blue eyes and blond hair.

Investigators estimate he is approximately 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall and weighs about 175 pounds. The subject also has a tattoo with letters running down his right leg but officials have been unable to make out what it says, police Sgt. Jerry Womack said.

He is also suspected to be driving a 2013-2016 Buick Verano.

The suspect allegedly entered a home while family was at church Sunday, stealing various items including a vehicle that was later located.

“It was really quite sad,” Womack said. “He really ransacked the house, pulled out all the drawers, just made a huge mess. He did a number on it.”

The suspect also used the alleged victim’s credit cards at various locations in town before the family knew their home had been broken into, Womack said.

The suspect may be traveling with a female.

If the public has any information regarding this suspect, please notify the Cedar City Police Department at 435-586-2956.
