CORAL GABLES, Fla. - A man suspected of stealing a laptop at the University of Miami's main campus is believed to be responsible for other on-campus thefts, authorities said.

Police said the man was most recently captured on surveillance video Jan. 25 walking onto the fourth floor of the university's Flipse Building during a short time frame when the victim's laptop was stolen from her office.

Police said the man resembles a subject of interest in numerous other office thefts that have been reported on campus.
