Deputies are asking for help identifying the man in this photo.

Burke County deputies are searching for a larceny suspect who took off after he was confronted by a homeowner Friday.

Deputies were dispatched to a home on Conley Road in Morganton at 11:42 a.m. after the homeowner said he saw a white man go under his deck on his outside security camera, according to a release from the Burke County Sheriff’s Office.

The homeowner confronted the man, who ran into a wooded area behind the house with a small propane grill he had stolen, the release said.

Officers at the scene checked the area and a K-9 officer was used to search the wooded area, but police were unable to find the suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Burke County Sheriff’s Office at 828-438-5500 or Morganton/Burke Crimestoppers at 828-437-3333.

Crimestoppers tips are anonymous, and anyone with information leading to an arrest may receive a cash reward.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol, Morganton Department of Public Safety and Glen Alpine Police Department all responded along with BCSO.
