The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance to locate a prolific thief who targets churches, schools and recreation centres.
Investigators believe Jesse Brian Brandon, 34, of Edmonton, (see photos below) is responsible for at least 10 thefts at locations across the city throughout 2016. In the most recent incident, Brandon allegedly broke into or tampered with 66 dressing room lockers at a south-side recreational facility, stealing laptops, purses, wallets, cell phones and credit cards, which lead to a subsequent string of frauds.
He is described as being a Caucasian male, approximately six feet tall with a slim build. He also has a tattoo on the right side of his neck that says “Gemini”.
Brandon is described as being violent, and currently has 12 warrants outstanding for previous thefts and domestic-violence related incidents.
Members of the public are encouraged not to approach Brandon should you see him, but instead contact police directly.
Anyone who has information about his whereabouts can contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
