Thief caught on camera stealing high-dollar car part

Posted: Updated:

Wichita police are hoping security video can help them catch a crook who stole a high-value car part. 

The video shows the man break the glass door at ICT Billet near West and Walker in southwest Wichita, then drag the $600 intake manifold away.  The business makes aftermarket car parts. Damage to the door totaled about $250. The crime happened about 6 a.m. June 2. 

"Not only did they lose the part, but the damage to front door, and now look at security measures," said Det. Wendy Hummell with the Wichita Police Department. "So all of those different things are a concern."

The thief left in what police describe as a green two-door car, possibly a Honda with a woman in the passenger seat. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 267-2111. You don't have to give your name and you could be eligible for a reward of up to $2,500.
