A suspect in three burglaries was apparently trying to steal guns. Now investigators say they need the public's help to catch that suspect.
The burglaries all happened within a few blocks of each other in Security Dec. 16.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said they got the first burglary call at 12:46 p.m. That incident was on the 1300 block of Main Street. The suspect(s) reportedly broke some glass to get into the home before stealing a small gun box, which was empty.
Hours later, a second call came in about a burglary down the street, on the 1100 block of Main Street. That home reportedly was entered the same way and several firearms were stolen. That call came in at 4:10 p.m.
The third call was to 200 block of Esther Drive, less than a quarter mile away. That came in at 6:37 p.m. Again, glass was broken enabling the suspect to get into the home. A firearm, several pieces of jewelry and other items were stolen.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said one resident saw a man wearing a baseball cap around 7:30 a.m. He was in a parked dark green car near the home.
The Sheriff's Office said the man is considered a person of interest. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 390-5555.
