Greg Every, owner of a Fanatic U outlet in Taylor, is getting tired of having his merchandise stolen by the same thief. He has shown surveillance footage of the suspect to the Taylor police, who would like to pick the guy up but don’t know who he is. He has gotten Scott Lewis and his investigators from WXYZ-7 on the case.
Now Every is reaching out to citizens, offering a $500 shopping spree in his store for information leading to the arrest of the persistent burglar.
The unknown subject has hit the retail outlet at 16750 Allen Rd, just north of Pennsylvania, twice, once in July and again earlier this month. In each case he used a hammer to punch a hole in the front door, letting himself in. He then grabbed an armful of sports hoodies (he seems partial to UM sweatshirts), then left.
The store’s security cameras have not only recorded images of the subject, but of his vehicle. It is an older model white or pale-colored GMC Jimmy.
Anyone recognizing the subject or his vehicle may contact the Taylor police, or shoot an e-mail to the Action News Investigators at firstname.lastname@example.org, unless you are so burned out on shopping that you would turn down 500 bucks in free sports merchandise.
