Rocklin police are seeking a man who ripped off a home then split in a red car in late February. The same man is suspected in at least one other theft, and authorities are asking for help identifying the guy.

Rocklin police need help identifying a porch pirate who made off with a package in February and might have struck again this month.

The first theft, captured on video by a home security camera, occurred about 5 p.m. Feb. 22 on Longview Drive in Rocklin. Lt. Scott Horrillo said in an email that a theft at 4:42 p.m. March 3 on Allan Drive in Rocklin was committed by a man driving the same car associated with the Feb. 22 heist.

The department released a still photograph taken from the approximate time of the Allan Drive theft.

Investigators are working to gather information on similar thefts that might have been done by the same man.
