JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance photos Tuesday of a suspected “porch pirate.”

Investigators say the theft happened on Nov. 20 at a home on Taliaferro Avenue on James Island.

A Ring doorbell camera recorded what deputies describe as a middle-aged, skinny man with short hair wearing sunglasses and a blue facemask, blue jeans, a blue t-shirt and blue tennis shoes who takes a package off the porch of a home.

The man appears to have tattoos on his upper right arm, deputies say.

Deputies say the man gets into a green station wagon, possibly a Subaru Outback.

Anyone who can identify the man or vehicle is asked to contact Detective James Jacko at 843-529-5357 or via email at jjacko@charlestoncounty.org.
