NORTH PORT - Authorities are looking for help identifying a man they say stole cash from a car wash business office Monday.

The burglary happened around 1:18pm Monday at the DJ Car Wash at 14956 Tamiami Trail in North Port.

According to the North Port Police Department, the owner of the business says he briefly left the business office and stayed on the lot.  That's when he says the suspect entered the unlocked office, and then left -- walking briskly, hunched down and holding the pockets of his cargo shorts.  He says the suspect then jumped in his vehicle, and left quickly.

The owner returned to the office to find $200 in cash missing from the petty cash box.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'7" tall, thin build, short hair, and wearing a white tank top and red basketball shorts.

He was driving a white Dodge Durango with the words "In God's Will" on the front windshield.  He was in the company of a black female driving a black 4-door Chrysler with the words "Not Without God" on the windshield.

If you have any information on this case please contact Detective Adam Taylor at 941-429-7328 or ataylor@northportpd.com.
