HOUSTON -

A man stole thousands of dollars worth of sporting equipment from the baggage claim area at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, detectives said.

Houston police said the man stole five sets of designer golf clubs and a one-of-a-kind "Moots" mountain bike from the terminal C baggage claim area between 10:20 and 10:50 p.m. on Aug. 27.

The combined value of the stolen equipment was about $15,000, police said.

In the airport surveillance video, the man, who hired an airport porter to help him, was seen walking out of the airport. Police said the two loaded up the man's 1990's red Ford Explorer Sport Trac and the man took off. Police talked to the porter and said he did nothing wrong.

The man was described as white and 30 to 45 years old with a slender build and light-colored hair. He was last seen wearing a blue polo-style shirt and khaki pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
