Suspect breaks into Toys 'R' Us

TRAVERSE CITY — Grand Traverse County sheriff’s deputies seek a suspect who broke into Toys “R” Us and stole electronics.

An alarm tripped at the Garfield Township retail store Sunday at about 4:15 a.m. A sheriff’s deputy arrived minutes later to find a window broken and boxes of electronic products scattered outside.

“It appears one subject had broken out the front glass window near the doors to gain entry,” said Capt. Randy Fewless.

Fewless said a male suspect who carried a shoulder bag and a black garbage bag went toward the store’s rear where employees kept electronics. He said store managers need to complete an inventory before they can tell what exactly the suspect took, but the damage alone is about $5,000.

The suspect fled before deputies arrived.

“(A) city police K-9 came to the scene and did a track with no success,” Fewless said.

Fewless said male suspect is between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches, slender to medium build and wore a dark jacket, dark pants, dark gloves and a dark stocking cap.

He said a detective met with store management on Tuesday and looked to obtain additional surveillance footage from nearby businesses.
