University of Utah campus police want the public's help finding whoever broke into and stole from the campus store in the past few weeks.

The robberies occurred on March 21, April 7 and Sunday at the store, located at 270 S. 1500 East in Salt Lake City, according to a news release. All three took place between midnight and 3 a.m.

More than $5,000 worth of products have been stolen, most of them electronics such as iPods and iPads, the release adds. The suspect has also caused several thousand dollars worth of damage to campus store property.

Surveillance video captured a dark-haired suspect who appears to be about 5-foot-10. In the footage of the most recent break-in, he is wearing gloves, a white T-shirt, grey jeans, a blue backpack and a white bandana as a mask, according to the release.

Anyone with information is asked to call 801-581-7028 or email sgirton@bookstore.utah.edu.

A $1,000 reward is available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
