Police seeking suspected tool thief

Police are looking for help tracking down two men who stole tools and equipment from a workshop in the 2000 block of W. El Camino Real.

Surveillance video taken from the workshop captured an image of one of the suspect's faces, as well as a tattoo on the back of his right calf.

According to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department, the men broke into the workshop on Nov. 25, between 7:32 a.m. and 7:52 a.m.

The men apparently used a pry tool to break a lock securing a door and then entered the workshop. They left with various tools, Jaeger said. The man captured on video appears to be Hispanic or Asian. He wore a dark, long-sleeved sweatshirt, black shorts and blue tennis shoes at the time.

The image of the man's tattoo is grainy, but it appears to be the Pittsburgh Steelers logo.
