The Turlock Police Department is investigating a burglary at Target that resembles two other thefts at retail stores.


The burglary in question occurred around 11:30 a.m. July 18 at the Target store at 3000 Countryside Drive.


According to the police report, the suspect selected two Xbox 360s, a Nintendo Wii, and a tool set. He removed the sensors and fled out the door with the stolen merchandise.


He completed his escape by jumping into a 15-passenger white van waiting out front for him.


The thief was described as a Hispanic man with short hair. He is about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 160 pounds, said Turlock Police Lt. Jeff Lopes.


Investigators believe the same individual has carried out similar thefts at stores in Turlock and Modesto.

 Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call the Turlock Police Department at 668-5550 or Crime Stoppers at 521-4636. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
