ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – At least one man is being sought in connection with two recent burglaries at the Royal St. Augustine Golf Course clubhouse.

The first occurred shortly before midnight on Sept. 5 when deputies responded to an alarm at the business. Deputies found an unlocked dining room door. Four bottles of liquor, valued at just under $100, was reported stolen. Damage was also reported to a cash register.

Surveillance images show a man wearing shorts and flip flops, a long sleeve shirt with a hood and a beanie. The suspect was wearing a large backpack with a reflective rectangular design on the back.

The second burglary occurred shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday. Entry was also gained through an unlocked door. A $25 bottle of liquor was stolen and two other bottles were broken. Deputies said the person in that burglary appeared to have a similar build as the first suspect. He was wearing tight fitting pants, shoes and a thin hoodie jacket.

Anyone with any information about the person in the surveillance images is asked to call Detective Todd Boger at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-824-8304. You can also remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling Crime Stoppers of N.E. Florida at 888-277-TIPS.
