SAN JOSE -- The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office has released images of a man suspected of stealing about 60 feet of copper wire from the VTA Santa Teresa light rail station early Thursday morning, a theft that cost an estimated $10,000 to repair.

Surveillance cameras at the station captured the man walking onto the platform and a nearby vehicle, just before the theft.

The vehicle is described as a late 1990s to early 2000s Ford Mustang. The man appears to be in his 40s or 50s wearing a blue jacket with a white logo on the chest, a black dress shirt, khaki-style pants and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information on this person is being asked to contact Detective Tobia at the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office transit detective division at 408-321-7137, or the anonymous tip line at 408-808-4431.
