Surveillance video of 'Doggie Door Bandit' (.mp4 format):

The Clackamas County Sheriff's is seeking help from the public to identify a burglary suspect who made a brazen entry into a Clackamas home through a "doggie door" -- only to be caught on camera in the act. Surveillance video is linked above.

At approximately 10:30 a.m. on April 2, 2019 an adult male committed a burglary at a residence in Clackamas on SE 108th Ave. The suspect entered the residence through a large doggie door, then stole several items from the home, including electronics and jewelry.

However -- and fortunately for investigators -- the victim had a surveillance camera pointed in the suspect's direction.

The video clearly captures the suspect looking in the window, then entering through the doggie door. After the suspect realizes he's on camera, he attempts to conceal his identity by quickly pulling a hood tightly over his head and then covering the camera with a blanket.

The suspect was described as follows:

  • African-American male
  • Approximately 18-25 years of age
  • Medium build
  • Wearing a black beanie, black hooded sweatshirt with "NBA" in white letters on the chest, light-grey sweats, black shoes with white soles, and black gloves

Photos of the suspect are attached. Surveillance video of this brazen burglary can be downloaded from this Dropbox address:
