A "couple of burglaries" were subsequently reported in that region, police said, with items reportedly missing from cars left unlocked.
The department is hoping someone recognizes this suspect, or maybe has other video of him allegedly "going through the neighborhood."
If anyone has information, they are encouraged to contact the Investigation Unit at (831) 420-5820, or submit an anonymous tip via the Smartphone app for iPhone and Droid, or through the web site at www.santacruzpolice.com.
And police remind residents:
- Do not leave valuables unsecured or in plain view in cars;
- If you see someone suspicious, call police;
- Or if you have video of this individual, contact SCPD investigators.
