— Cary police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man captured on video as they investigate a string of burglaries in the town's Lochmere Highlands neighborhood.

Investigators say three homes were burglarized during the overnight hours of Jan. 10 and Jan. 12 while the occupants slept.

The suspect or suspects stole TVs, purses, wallets, jewelry and a variety of electronic equipment. No one was harmed.

Investigators released the video Thursday afternoon but did not identify its source or say why they want to speak with the individual in it. They describe him only as having a medium build with short dark hair.

Police have stepped up patrols in the neighborhood since the crimes occurred, and remind residents to keep all home and car doors locked and to report to authorities any suspicious activity, including anyone in suspicious or idling vehicles in residential areas.

Cary police ask anyone with information about the crimes to contact Crime Stoppers at 919-226-2746 or the police department at 919-380-2133.

Crime Stoppers pays up to $2,500 for the arrest or indictment of those responsible for committing certain types of crimes, and all calls are kept confidential at the caller's request.
