Video captures laptop thief in the act

Santa Clara police are searching for a man who appeared in video footage captured by a surveillance system in a computer store that was burglarized Sept. 3, police announced Tuesday.

At about 4:20 a.m. Sept. 3, a man stole several laptop computers from Goldtek Computer at 500 Laurel Wood Road in Santa Clara, officers said.

The man, with a goatee and wearing glasses, gloves, a long white T-shirt and white athletic shoes, is seen on the video footage entering a storage room, according to the video posted by police on YouTube.

He shines a flashlight around the room at some shelves and boxes, then walks close to the camera and appears to tamper with it before the video comes to an end.

Police are asking anyone who may recognize the suspect or with any information about the burglary to call Detective Johnny Fanucchi at (408) 615-4825.
