Salina Police are looking for a male suspect seen on surveillance video breaking into a YMCA locker and then stealing a Jeep from the parking lot on Tuesday afternoon.

The man was described as being a white male approximately 33 years of age, 5'-7", and weighing approximately 185 pounds, Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning. The man had a large beard and was wearing a black beanie, a gray and purple sweatshirt with "Wildcats" on the front, blue jeans, and red shoes.

According to Forrester, the man was seen on surveillance video getting off a CityGo bus at the YMCA, 570 YMCA Drive, shortly after 3 p.m. He then was seen going directly to the locker room, Forrester said. A few minutes later, the man was seen going outside and getting into a black 2014 Jeep Wrangler belonging to Tyler Bouasanouvong, 24, of Salina, Forrester said.

At approximately 3:45 p.m., Bouasanouvong went into the locker room and found that his locker had been broken into and his backpack was on the floor, Forrester said. Bouasanouvong's wallet and keys, as well as $5 worth of quarters, and the Master Lock lock from the locker were gone, Forrester added. Bouasanouvong then went outside and discovered that his Jeep also was missing, Forrester said.

The Jeep, valued at $25,000, had a Kansas license plate of 373 LVA, Forrester said. The items stolen from the locker were valued at $200, he said.
