Attempted burglary suspect leaves DNA and and can be seen on camera breaking glass

Police are looking for public assistance in identifying an attempted burglary suspect shown on video breaking out the glass of the Elks Lodge door on January 16th about 9:40 pm at 1001 Tri View Avenue in Sioux City.


Police say the suspect left blood evidence and while they wait for DNA results to come back they hope that someone recognizes the individual who appears to have thrown rocks at a window to break it and then attempted to reach through to unlock the door.

The video was posted to Sioux City Police Facebook page, I have edited it by increasing the speed in parts of the video where the suspect is not so visible.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 712-258-8477 or by texting your tip to 274637 with the word SCPDTIP in the message. You may also contact Detective Harstad at 712-279-6392
