An investigation is underway after a man broke into seven vehicles in the Braden Oaks neighborhood early Saturday morning.
Between 2 and 7 a.m. Saturday, Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies say a man in his 20s entered seven unlocked vehicles. He took a small amount of cash from one of the vehicles and stole car keys from another, according to a news release.
The sheriff’s office found video of a potential suspect and a suspect vehicle that investigators believe is involved in at least three of the burglaries that took place within that time frame. The break-ins occurred in the 2800 block of 59th St. Court E. and the 5900 block of 28th Ave. Drive E.
The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall male who weighs between 150 and 180 pounds. He is believed to be driving a dark colored vehicle, deputies say. Further information was not immediately available.
