HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Some thieves will go to great lengths to commit a crime.

For one suspect - it came down to squeezing themselves through a tight spot.

The Crime Stoppers want to find a man who squeezed his way into a high dollar theft. Take a look here. If you recognize this slippery suspect, your tip could be worth up to four figures!

Huntsville Police say this suspect squeezed through a fence to get into Kelsey Electric Motor Company on Commercial Drive in late February. Once inside, officers say he removed two machine hoists, valued at more than $3,000.

Authorities say he left the area, but quickly returned so he could place both pieces of equipment onto a blue Kia Sorento, driven by someone else. The two then took off with the stolen items.

If you have a tip that leads to police to these suspects, you could qualify for up to $1,000. Call 53-CRIME. You can also text or email your tips.
