DURHAM, N.C. -

Durham police are asking for assistance in identifying a suspect in the theft of a pig cooker from the driveway of a home on May 23. 

The large grill, worth an estimated $4,000, was stolen from the driveway of a home off Mineral Springs Road, police said.

The suspect was described as a black male in his mid-30s, approximately 5
feet 8 inches tall with a medium build and a bald head. He was wearing a
green T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts.

The suspect was driving what appeared to be a black 1995-2005 Chevrolet Silverado.

Durham police are also investigating the theft of two other large pig cookers/smokers.

Two pig cookers were stolen from the 3900 block of South Alston Avenue in April. The cookers were chained to the back of a building, according to police.

Police said two large smokers on a trailer were stolen from Mount Bethel Presbyterian
Church in April. The trailer was stolen along with the smokers.
