Loudon County (WVLT) - Loudon County authorities hope surveillance video will help them catch the person they say broke into someone's vehicle and stole some credit cards.

They say the incident happened on October 19th at a restaurant in Loudon County. The thief stole credit cards and check cards, then used one of the check cards a short time later. They say this is the third or fourth incident, but they're not sure if the same person is responsible. They're also not sure if the suspect is dangerous, but they do say he shows little fear.

"He broke the windows out in broad daylight in the parking lot of a local restaurant where it's real crowded, so, you know, he's pretty brazen," Loudon County Detective Jack Fine said.

Deputies say they're looking for a white man who appears to be in his mid 30s, of average height, about 155 to 165 pounds with short blondish-brown hair. He's driving a late 90s model, black or dark green Jeep Cherokee-type vehicle.

If you have any information, you're asked to call 986-2005 or after hours, call 986-9081.
