Arnold Police have a vague description on a man who may have been involved in a string of thefts on four streets all within a 2-mile area, authorities reported.

On Oct. 22, thefts were reported in the 600 block of Idaho Drive, 500 block of Maple Meadows Drive, 400 block of Mabel Drive and the Starling Community mobile home court.

More than $1,000 in items were stolen Oct. 14-22 from the four locations, including an ATV and scooter, police reported.

On Oct. 22, a man attempted to use a credit card that was stolen at one of the addresses at the Walmart Supercenter, 2201 Michigan Ave. Police obtained a surveillance video of the suspect, a white male wearing a camouflage hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

The man allegedly tried to use the card twice at Walmart to purchase $441.76 worth of merchandise, but the card was declined, according to the report.

The angle of the footage could not provide a clear image of the man’s face, but he was seen driving an older model SUV, the report said.

The card was stolen between the evening of Oct. 21 and morning of Oct. 22 from an unlocked 2004 Chevrolet Suburban parked outside a residence in the 500 block of Maple Meadows Drive, according to the report.

Arnold Police suspect the man could have been working with others in the area, Lt. Clinton Wooldridge said.

Three unlocked Kia Souls – 2010, 2015 and 2017 models – were ransacked on Idaho Drive sometime between the evening of Oct. 21 and morning of Oct. 22, and $94 worth of items were taken, the report said.

In the 400 block of Mabel Drive, between 2 a.m. Oct. 14 and 9:30 a.m. Oct. 22, a 2015 Coolster 3125R ATV valued at $795 was stolen from a shed, police reported.

In the Starling Community mobile home park, between 10 p.m. Oct. 21 and 10 a.m. Oct. 22, a 2017 Taotao scooter valued at $200 was stolen from outside a home, the report said.

As of Nov. 2, none of the property had been recovered and there were no arrests, Wooldridge said. Anyone with information about the incidents should call Arnold Police at 636-296-3204.
