Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land police are looking for a man believed to have participated in at least 14 burglaries targeting nail salons during December and January.

Five burglaries occurred in Sugar Land, and another nine were in Missouri City. Objects were used to smash glass doors each time.

Police recovered still images from surveillance video during a burglary at Herbal Essential Nail Spa, 3378 Highway 6, on Dec. 28.  

A black, four-door passenger car with silver rims, possibly a Lexus, was seen in the parking lot just before midnight. A few minutes later, a black man who appeared to be talking on a mobile phone threw a battery pack through a glass door, entered the business and took about $300 from the cash register. He was last seen leaving the salon and walking toward the same vehicle seen earlier.

The man was black and in his late 20s to early 30s.  He was wearing a heavy blue or green jacket, a black sweater with a hood, black pants with a white stripe at the knees and white tennis shoes. 

A similar crime occurred at Simply Devine Nail Salon, 16562 Southwest Freeway, sometime between Dec. 21-22. A large piece of concrete was thrown through a glass door, and a little more than $300 was stolen from a register and a tip jar.

Newlooks Salon, 3312 Highway 6, Venetian Nail Spa, 13513 University Blvd., and Glam Nail Spa, 5726 New Territory Blvd., were all burglarized sometime between Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.  In each instance, a glass door was smashed, but nothing was taken. 

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).
