Thief steals policeman's gun, badge, other items -- San Antonio, TX

Investigators with the U.S. Marshals Service are searching for a thief who broke into a Deputy Marshal's car last Thursday.

The car burglary happened outside the China Sea restaurant near I-10 and Wurzbach Road. Investigators say the thief stole a briefcase containing the policeman's gun, badge, passports, and credit cards among other items.

Investigators do have surveillance images of the man. They say the suspect used the stolen credit cards at an ATM, and used them to buy fuel from a gas station.

"This guy is dangerous," said Tom Smith, a supervisor with U.S. Marshal Services of Southern Texas. "He's probably into drugs. I mean he's pretty bold, and he's got a gun and a badge in his possession. So, we need to get him off the street. We need to get him off the street right away."
