ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WXYZ) — Royal Oak police are looking for a man who they believe is the suspect involved in two separate crimes.

According to police, on Jan. 6, officers received a call to a business at 1912 Bellaire. The building's front door glass had been broken out and several key fobs were stolen from inside. Additionally, a black 2017 Nissan Altima was reported stolen from the business.

Detectives later determined that the male suspect who was caught on camera stealing from a nearby Kroger grocery store earlier that same day may have been involved in the business break-in. The suspect allegedly stole liquor on two separate occasions from the Kroger at 2200 E. 12 Mile Road. Police say the suspect stole a bottle of liquor on Jan. 5 at 7:33 p.m. and another bottle at 9:44 p.m. the same day.

If you recognize the suspect or have information regarding this case, please contact Royal Oak Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division Lieutenant Keith Spencer at 248-246-3456.
