Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in a recent burglary/break-in.

Shortly before 5 a.m. on March 31, the Marshall County Sheriff's Office received a report of a break-in at KDAO-TV, 1930 North Center Street Road, north of Marshalltown.

On Wednesday, Marshall County Chief Sheriff's Deputy Steve Hoffman told the Times-Republican that someone forcibly entered the building and did "a significant amount of damage.

"We are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect who was captured on surveillance video" sometime early on the morning of the 31st, he said.

Those with any information about the suspect and/or the incident should call the Marshall County Communications Center at 641-754-5725.

They may also provide anonymous information through Marshall County Crime Stoppers. Tips may be submitted by calling (641) 753-1234, via text by texting the word "marshall" followed by the tip to CRIMES (274637), or online at

Hoffman said this burglary is among a handful of incidents throughout central and north central Marshall County within the past week.

He said burglaries have been reported at both residential and commercial properties and have occurred during overnight and daytime hours. That includes a recent break-in at the co-op in Liscomb where a door was smashed in.

"Again, anyone who has noticed any suspicious activity in the county should call the communications center," Hoffman said.
