Anthony Charles Hillman (University of Colorado Police Department)

University of Colorado police are looking for a Denver resident who investigators suspect tried to steal bikes on the Boulder campus in November, according to a news release.

A judge issued an arrest warrant for Anthony Charles Hillman, 45, on suspicion of possession of burglary tools, a Class 5 felony.

On Nov. 29, 2012, witnesses reported two men casing bike racks near the Engineering Center and Willard and Hallett halls on the CU campus.

Officers interviewed the men -- identified as Hillman and Joel Bensoussan -- and both denied they were trying to steal bikes. Officers found wire cutters, a U-lock, two flashlights and 4 U-lock keys in Hillman's backpack.

Bensoussan was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Denver, while Hillman was given a written warning. Further investigation led to CU police requesting an arrest warrant for Hillman as well.

Hillman is described as 6 feet tall weighing about 260 pounds. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, they are urged to contact CU police at 303-492-8168 and ask for Sgt. Michael Lowry.

Those who have information on these crimes but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776.
