DURHAM, N.C. -

Durham police are asking for assistance in identifying a suspect in the theft of a pig cooker from the driveway of a home on May 23. 

The large grill, worth an estimated $4,000, was stolen from the driveway of a home off Mineral Springs Road, police said.

feet 8 inches tall with a medium build and a bald head. He was wearing a
green T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts.

The suspect was driving what appeared to be a black 1995-2005 Chevrolet Silverado.

Church in April. The trailer was stolen along with the smokers.
