US Marshals searching for fugitive involved in Cedar Park car burglary ring
Authorities are looking for a man who was part of a theft ring burglarizing cars in Cedar Park. Back in May 2015, Cedar Park Police say they caught Matthew Glenn Sullivant after breaking into several cars.
"There was an incident that occurred where Sullivant was in the possession of a stolen iPad with other numerous items," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.
Four other people were also in the group tied to the crime.
"This is a violent crime, this is someone who had stolen some type of merchandise as well as a Visa credit card and used that Visa credit card to further gain access to money," said Filla.
And this wasn't Sullivant's first run-in with the law.
"He's had eight arrests and three convictions. Those arrests pertain to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, narcotics use, and once theft," said Filla.
Filla said some may think theft is a petty crime, but it's one they take seriously.
"When you're interfering with people's possessions as well as identity, you are victimizing the people of the community and we take that crime very seriously," said Filla.
Sullivant is 6-feet tall and weighs 225 pounds. They're focusing the search on the greater Austin area. If you have any information, call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 512-800-4213
