Biloxi police have shared this photo of a car window being smashed at the Days Inn on Beach Boulevard. They want help to identify four young people filmed while burglarizing cars there on Wednesday.

Four young suspects walked through a hotel parking lot checking for unlocked doors and smashed the back window of one vehicle, unaware surveillance cameras were filming them.

The Biloxi Police Department has released pictures from the footage in hopes that someone will recognize them and help identify them.

Multiple burglaries were reported early Wednesday at the Days Inn on Beach Boulevard, also known as U.S. 90, Biloxi Police Investigator Justin Branning said. The hotel is between McDonnell and Travia avenues.

Surveillance footage shows the four walking through the parking lot and pulling door handles, Branning said.

Some of the footage shows them busting one vehicle’s rear window and taking assorted clothing items they found inside the car, he said.
