The Wayne County Sheriff's Office needs help identifying a man accused of stealing equipment from the Penobscot Building in Detroit. 

Deputies say they received an email from the company's technology director Monday, saying work station equipment was missing from cabinets. 

Missing items included: an Apple iPad, a Dell laptop and carrying bag, as well as a Samsung cell phone. 

Officers say the iPad and laptop were not secure. The drawer containing the cell phone had been pried open. 

Surveillance footage revealed an older black male carrying a laptop bag that matched the description of the stolen item. 

The man was wearing blue jacket, blue jeans and green cap. Police say he entered the 9th floor to Suite 901 where the IT programming equipment was housed. 

If you recognize the man, contact the Sheriff's Office at (313) 224-2233.
