Colorado State University Police Department is asking for help in identifying a suspect in several thefts.

Officials said there has been an increase in thefts since school started due to unlocked and unattended offices and laboratories.

The suspect is described as a white male with blond hair, usually in a braid. He carries a large tan backpack and may be using Transfort to get around. More surveillance photographs can be viewed at http://safety.colostate.edu/.

Anyone with information regarding the current thefts or suspect should contact CSU Sgt. Jason Meisner at (970) 491-5074.
