A surveillance camera’s footage led to the identification of a 38-year-old man who allegedly burglarized a house in Puerto Rico and stole a wallet last July 3.

Police Officer Jason Tarkong said yesterday that police are now hunting down the suspect, Daro Reyes Cabrera, on charges of burglary and theft.

Tarkong described Cabrera as a local Chamorro, 5’4” tall, about 140 lbs, with dark short balding hair, brown eyes, and with multiple tattoos.

Tarkong said Cabrera has a mustache and may have a short goatee when he committed the crimes.

Police officers responded to a house in Puerto Rico last July 3 at 9:23am after receiving a call about a burglary.

The officers viewed the surveillance camera’s footage of the suspect, climbing through a window, stealing a wallet, and exiting the same window.

After police identified the suspect as Cabrera, they contacted his family members, co-workers, and friends.

As of yesterday, the defendant remains at large, Tarkong said.

Tarkong said that last Monday, Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho issued an arrest warrant for Cabrera.

Crime Stoppers is seeking the public’s help on Cabrera’s whereabouts, said Tarkong, who is also coordinator for NMI Crime Stoppers Program.
