Police need your help identifying suspect in YMCA theft

Erie Police release surveillance video of a man considered a person of interest in a theft of money from the Glenwood YMCA.

There's possibly some justice in the future for Kale Fisher.  He was the veteran who had a large amount of money stolen out of his secured locker at the Glenwood Y.

On August 15th after an evening run, Fisher noticed his locker at the Y was wide open.  His lock was in a nearby trash can, destroyed with bolt cutters.  Money that was going towards his wife's classroom was stolen from his wallet.  Erie Police release images and video of man considered a person of interest in the case.

Police say the man gave the YMCA the name of Jaime Pinedo, however; that is believed to be a fake name.  He's described as a hispanic male in his mid-forties.

The YMCA utilized their 48 surveillance cameras at that location to help aid police in their investigation.  They urge members to use their security lockers available for members free of charge.  "If they feel they need to bring valuables into the Y, there is actual security lockers that are available for our members to be able to use at no cost to them. So that helps to ensure the safety of valuables again, if it is necessary to bring valuables into the Y," says Tammy Roche of the YMCA of Greater Erie. 

And, while the Fishers wait for justice, last week we told you about a generous and anonymous donor that stopped by the station with a check for Kale and his wife, so not all hope in humanity is lost.

If you can identify the man in the video or have any information, you are asked to call Detective Seargant Holmes at 814-870-1503.
