Cabarrus seeks vehicle break-in suspect

Cabarrus County authorities are asking the public’s help in finding a suspect in a series of vehicle break-ins.

Authorities said the crimes took place late Wednesday night and early Thursday in the Midland and Bethel Glen areas. Sgt. Sara Price said surveillance video showed the suspect shining a flashlight into vehicles, looking for valuables.

Price said the victims had locked their vehicles, but the suspect broke windows to get access. She said the video is a reminder to the public to avoid leaving valuables inside their vehicles in plain sight of criminals.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 704-920-3000.
