Sacramento police are asking the public’s help identifying suspects in several recent burglaries in the South Natomas area.

Between May 28 and Monday, officers responded to four business burglaries that may be related, according to a Police Department news release. The burglaries occurred at Metro PCS and Boost Mobile, both in the 2300 block of Northgate Boulevard, and the Phone Shop and Fay Jewelers, both in the 1500 block of West El Camino Avenue.

In all four cases, the suspect or suspects entered by breaking the front windows of the businesses. The burglaries all occurred in the early morning hours, between 3 and 4:30 a.m.

The suspect captured by surveillance cameras in the Fay Jewelers burglary is described as being of medium build with dreadlocks and wearing a hooded sweatshirt. A suspect shown in a surveillance photo in the Boost Mobile burglary is described only as having a heavy build.

Anyone with information pertaining to the burglaries is asked to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357, or text a tip to 274637. Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
