RUSK, TX (KTRE) -

A Rusk man is seeking help in locating a man allegedly who stole his 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass from a True Value hardware store Sunday morning. The car also contained more than $5,000 worth of tattoo studio equipment.

Martin Holsome was preparing to open his new tattoo shop Tuesday evening, but on Sunday Mar. 3, it all changed.

"I was in the True Value in Rusk picking up material to finish out our new shop," Martin Holsome, the car's owner said in an e-mail. "When I exited the store, I noticed that my car was gone."

At first he thought it might be a joke, but then he realized it wasn't. He called his wife and asked if she moved it messing with him, but she wasn't.

"She started screaming at me over the phone saying, No I didn't move the car," said Holsome.

A spokesperson for the Rusk Police Department confirmed that the car had been stolen.

Holsome obtained video the True Value store's surveillance camera and sent it to the Rusk Police Department. The video shows a white male between the ages of 20 and 30 wearing an orange hoodie and dark jeans getting into the car and driving away. The man has an average build is believed to be about 6'0" in height.

Holsome's Cutlass is a gray 2-door, and the license plate number is BCM-2505.

The tattoo equipment was in a black and yellow roll-around plastic tool tote and a small, silver briefcase.

"This equipment was going to be what opened my shop here in Rusk, and without it, we are in trouble," Holsome said. "Please help us recover this property as it is my family's only transportation."

Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of Holsome's car and tattoo equipment should call the Rusk Police Department at (903) 683-2213.
