COLUMBUS, Ga. - Columbus police have released photos and videos from three recent burglaries with hopes someone will recognize the suspects and call investigators.

The first occurred on December 14 at Wynnton Tires, located at 1519 Wynnton Road. In that case, a suspect broke out a front glass window and door in order to gain access to the building, police say. Once inside, he stole tires. The suspect is described only as a male. He was driving light colored four door vehicle with a sunroof. Police believe it could possibly be a Nissan or Chevy Malibu.

The second burglary occurred on December 16 at Cloud 9 Vapor Store, located at 7610 Veterans Parkway. A black male wearing striped toboggan hat and a dark shirt entered the business by breaking a front glass door, police say. He stole a laptop and television.

Two days later, a black male broke in to Maple Mart Sports Bar, located at 8328 Veterans Parkway, police say. There the suspect took two televisions after forcing open a side door. The suspect was wearing camo cargo pants with an Atlanta Braves baseball cap.

Anyone with information related to these crimes is asked to call Burglary and Theft Unit investigators at 706-225-4345.
