Houston Police Department (HPD) recently released a surveillance video seeking information on a suspect in the video who is wanted for a theft crime in Houston involving a Dallas-Texas woman.
Nigerian-American Rapper GODWON, who we all know has bad blood with Nigerian-American Rapper Sinzu, claims that the suspect in the video clip is SINZU. Sinzu is said to currently reside in Houston, Texas.
Godwon took to twitter to share the news.
Is rapper Godwon completely out of line in doing this? Also, you wonder if indeed he claims it is Sinzu, why is he sitting on twitter tweeting rather than going directly to the authorities?
There are many instances where people have looked like criminal suspects but they are in fact not the suspects. It is rather malicious and very mean spirited, beyond the clear legal liabilities that follow, for someone to get on social media and ID another person as a suspect, especially one he has deep anger/”beef” with.
It is pretty serious when you get on social media and accuse someone of being a suspect in a crime video. We are past child play when you do so. If you do so, you better be sure what you are saying, you really better be sure.
By the way, the photo in this article is that circulating around and of which is allegedly being used to claim that the guy in the video is Sinzu. It is as of April 18th, 2014. The incident occurred March 2nd, 2014.
Police released surveillance video of a theft suspect after an alert Dallas-area woman quickly contacted authorities when she saw more than $300 in purchases made in southwest Houston with funds from her bank account last month.
The purchases were made about noon March 2 at a Walgreens at 8535 S. Braeswood, according to the Houston Police Department.
Police said the suspect is seen in the video swiping what appears to be a debit card with the woman’s account information at an ATM machine inside the store. He then uses the card to buy several gift cards valued at more than $300.
The 38-year-old woman notified authorities immediately when she noticed the unauthorized withdrawal.
HPD Office K. Mokwa said the woman was smart to check her bank balances daily for unauthorized transactions and then to quickly notify police when she spotted them.
The woman, Mokwa said, had not had her card stolen or allowed anyone else to use them. But somehow, he added, the suspect was able to obtain the woman’s bank account information.
The suspect is described as black and between about 20 and 30 years old. He is between 5 feet, 7 inches and 6 feet, 2 inches tall, and he weighs about 150 to 190 pounds. He had long dreadlocks, a mustache and a beard.
Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is urged to contact HPD’s Investigative First Responder Division at 713-247-8400 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
