A burglar entered a downtown San Luis Obispo business Tuesday night and made off with about $1,000 in high-end knives and outdoor gear, according to the store manager.
Video surveillance footage from SLO Camp N’ Pack on the 300 block of Higuera Street shows a man with short, dark hair and wearing a light-colored sweatshirt walking into the store before covering his head with his hoodie and rummaging through items.
Manager Jason Hileman said store owners were alerted of the intruder by the in-store alarm at 10:23 p.m. When they arrived, they found the man had fled and there were no obvious signs of forced entry.
The thief made off with several expensive knives, Hileman said.
San Luis Obispo police are currently investigating the burglary. Anyone with information regarding the suspect is urged to call the Police Department at 781-7317 or SLO Camp N’ Pack at 541-8006.
