VENICE, Fla. (WFLA) – The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s help catching a burglar.

Deputies say the man pictured broke into four homes in Venice from April 26 and April 29 and may have used a blue crowbar to pry open door frames before entering the homes to steal electronics, cash, and jewelry. 

The suspect is described as a black male with brown eyes and is believed to have long dreadlocks. Detectives believe he is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs 170 lbs.

A 2018 dark grey or silver Nissan Altima was also seen in the area where the burglaries took place.

Anyone with information regarding the burglaries, person or vehicle of interest, is asked to contact the Sarasota Sheriff’s Office at 941-861-4915
