The Walworth County Sheriff’s Office says it has “tentatively identified” a suspect in the theft of 11,000 to 12,000 Topps baseball cards and sticker books from a storage unit near Whitewater.
At about 6:20 a.m. Nov. 16, someone broke into a storage unit facility on Highway 59, according to the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network. One of the lockers in the facility had its lock cut off, and a box containing the cards and sticker books was taken.
Authorities released photos of the suspect and a vehicle, which appears to be a 1997-2001 Toyota Camry, according to the alert.
In a follow-up alert Monday afternoon, sheriff’s officials canceled their call for help because they believed they had identified the suspect.
