MPD: Thief Breaks into House; Steals Shoes

Jeremiah L. Watkins

Mobile Police are looking for a pretty bold burglar, who apparently has a thing for shoes. FOX10 News "Fugitive Files" wants to help M-P-D find this "heel".

This is the guy they're looking for: 24 year old Jeremiah Lamar Watkins. According to investigators, earlier this month, Watkins got inside a house in the 5500 block of Racine Avenue-that's between Overlook and Moffett Roads in West Mobile- by using the garage door. Once inside they tell us he took a tv, some cash, and apparently, several pairs of shoes. He hasn't been seen since.

Watkins is 5 feet, 7 inches tall; weighing 130 pounds. He's charged with 3rd degree burglary.

If you have seen Watkins, or know where he is, call the FOX10 News "Fugitive Files-Crime-Stoppers" Hotline at 205-208-7211. Remember, when you call with information about Watkins, you don't have to leave your name.
