Biloxi police need the public’s help identifying people caught on camera breaking into cars in two neighborhoods.

Police on Monday responded to the Goose Pointe subdivision off Pass Road after receiving reports of two car burglaries.

Two people wearing makeshift masks and gloves were seen walking through the neighborhood and pulling on doorhandles of vehicles marked in driveways, said police Lt. Chris De Back.

The suspects entered one vehicle in the subdivision about 3:30 a.m., De Back said.

About two weeks earlier, two people wearing masks to cover their face broke into at least seven vehicles in the Sunkist Country Club neighborhood between June 27 and June 28, De Back said.

Surveillance photos from Sunkist showed the suspects entering three of those vehicles about 1:30 a.m. June 28.

De Back said cell phones, tablets and loose change were among the items taken out of the vehicles.

Anyone with information about the burglaries should call the Biloxi Police Department at 228-392-0641 or the Biloxi police Criminal Investigations Divsion at 228-435-6112. Tips can also be emailed to ciu@biloxi.ms.us.
