“Suffolk County Crime Stoppers and Suffolk County Police Fourth Squad detectives are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate a man who is wanted for questioning in connection to an incident during which pool vacuums were stolen from a Smithtown business earlier this year.
A person or people cut the lock on a storage unit and stole a total of seven Maytronics M500 and S300i pool vacuums from Chemex Pool Supply, located at 400 West Main St., during the overnight hours between May 29 and 30. The stolen vacuums have a combined value of approximately $7,000.
Police are looking to question a man who was seen canvassing the exterior of the location earlier in the day. The man was described as Hispanic, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with an average build, dark-colored hair and a beard. When asked by staff why he was at the location, the man, who spoke limited English, said he was looking for a lost bicycle.”
