Blythe Police are seeking a burglary suspect who broke in to Bruce's Casino, making off with two flat screen televisions, a bar top video game console, a cash register, and several cases of beer.
Henry Avalos, 57, of Blythe, who was seen in video of the crime, had been arrested the previous day for public intoxication.
On July 10, at about 7:31 a.m., officers from the Blythe Police Department found a broken window at Bruce's Casino in the 100 block of S. Main Street. Officers made entry, but found no one inside but there were obvious signs entry had been made to the building.
Video surveillance cameras recorded Avalos breaking the window and entering and leaving the building. Officers report that at the time of the burglary, Avalos appeared to still be wearing the same clothes as when he was arrested.
The estimated loss is valued at over $2,200.
At about 11:03 a.m., officers responded to a motel in the 900 block of E. Hobsonway after receiving information that some of the stolen property might be at the location. Officers searched the area and found the bar top video game console at the rear of the location.
At this time, Avalos has not been located. Anyone with information regarding this case, or Avalos' whereabouts, is urged to contact Blythe Police Detective Troy Fabanich at 922-6111 or they can give their information anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273).
