Police seek Ocean View theft suspect


Police are seeking the public’s assistance to identify a man sought for questioning in connection with a stolen moped and other property crimes in Ocean View.

At about 5:30 a.m. July 17 officers were called to the 92-8600 block of Paradise Parkway in Ocean View, for a report of a man trespassing onto the property and causing damage to a window screen. The suspect reportedly left on a moped.

Then at about 2 a.m. the following morning police recovered a moped on Highway 11 near Tiki Lane in Ocean View that matched the description of the one in the Paradise Parkway incident. Police learned the moped had been stolen two months ago from a residence on Easement Road in the Ocean View Ranchos subdivision.

Investigators also determined a man riding the stolen moped had been at a shopping complex in Ocean View at about 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 14, when his image was captured on video surveillance.

Anyone who recognizes the man or may have information about these incidents is asked to call the police department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300.
