FRAMINGHAM — Police on Tuesday released several home security videos of at least one suspect participating in multiple vehicle and house break-ins that occurred over the past two months.
"It's hard to tell if it's all the same person," said Mickens. "We have videos from two different incidents — one at the beginning of the month and one from this past weekend — and it appears it could be the same person."
Investigators have determined the break-ins generally occur between 11 p.m. and the early morning hours. In security videos, the suspect or suspects are wearing hats, masks and gloves to help conceal their identities.
Mickens said the incidents are not limited to one section of the city.
"It appears to be spreading throughout the area," she said.
Some homes were broken into, or attempted to be broken into, even when residents were home, Mickens said.
In neighboring Natick, police spokeswoman Lt. Cara Rossi said several cars were broken into last week.
The break-ins occurred in the Natick Village area, with one car stolen during the incidents. That car was later found in Framingham, Rossi said.
Mickens, however, said it's not clear whether the activity in each community is connected.
Investigators released the videos in hopes that someone may recognize the suspect or suspects, their clothing or even how they walk.
Police say they will increase patrols in neighborhoods and are asking residents to make sure all vehicles are locked and no valuables are left in them.
If anyone has information about the incidents, they are asked to call the Framingham Police Department at 508-872-1212.
