Police Seek Identity of Burglary Suspect

Meridian police detectives have released surveillance images of a suspect who tried to break in to an ATM at a local credit union.

It happened around 1:36 a.m. Aug. 24 at Meridian Mutual Federal Credit Union, 809 26th Avenue.

The surveillance camera shows a white male at first just walking past the ATM with his face uncovered. He later approached the machine with half his face covered by a bandanna or scarf.

He's estimated to be between 5'7" and 6 feet tall, about 175 pounds, and had a hand-inked tattoo of the letters "D.A." on his right upper arm between his shoulder and elbow. He was wearing a New York Yankees cap, a sleeveless T-shirt, and what appeared to be denim shorts.

The suspect attempted to burglarize the ATM using a crowbar which resulted in heavy damage to the ATM.

Anyone who knows who this person is or knows anything about the crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.

    In defense of Wondering.....I believe the person was making a joke. "D.A." = "dumb ___". Get it?
