Central Ohio Crime Stoppers is requesting the public’s assistance in locating the suspect involved in a Felony Theft which took place at a Hilton Hotel in Columbus.
On Monday, May 18, 2015, at approximately 9:10pm, an unidentified male walked into the Hilton Hotel at Easton Town Center. He then traveled down a hallway, entered a conference room, and stole a laptop computer after the victim left the room. Based on review of surveillance footage, the suspect was in the hotel for five to ten minutes at most. Ironically, and unbeknownst to both, the victim and suspect’s paths crossed when the victim went back to the conference room and the suspect exited the hotel with the stolen property. The suspect is described as: Male/White, tall, thin, with medium length dark hair, possible goatee, wearing black or very dark clothing (dark shirt, suit jacket and pants), with a light colored pocket square and dark brown shoes. Surveillance photos of the suspect can be viewed above.
