— Chapel Hill police released surveillance video Tuesday in hopes that someone will recognize a man suspected of a series of business break-ins.

The video shows a white man and a small, white truck near Rams Plaza on Fordham Boulevard on the morning of Nov. 18. Two break-ins were reported in that area around the time the video was recorded, police said.

Since that date, police have also responded to break-ins Timberlyne Shopping Center on Weaver Dairy Road and the Village Plaza on South Elliott Road.

Anyone with information about the break-ins or the identity of the man in the video is asked to call the Chapel Hill Police Department at 919-968-2760 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.

Calls to Crime Stoppers are confidential and anonymous, and the caller might be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000 for information that leads to arrest.
