Citrus Heights police need help in finding a man responsible for a series of home burglaries on the west side of the city.

The most recent of the early morning break-ins occurred Thursday morning on Ironbark Court near Interstate 80 between Greenback Lane and Antelope Road. The burglar uses open space and creek areas for his escape, police said.

During some of the burglaries, the man enters through unlocked doors or windows. The thief takes small items and cash.

He wears a light blue or gray hooded sweatshirt over dark clothes. The man was seen inside one home but fled from residents.
