Fayette County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man they suspect of breaking into more than two dozen cars in recent days.

According to a news release from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, approximately 22 vehicles were entered in the Shenandoah Estates subdivision off Old Highway Sunday. Deputies responding to the area encountered a man carrying several items, but he fled on a bicycle.

Police discovered a second set of 12 vehicles in the nearby Newton Plantation subdivision on Wednesday that had also been entered.

Most of the vehicles may have been unlocked at the time of the thefts, according to the release. Items taken include money, shoes, ammunition and electronics. Fayette County authorities urge people to lock their car doors and keep items of value out of sight.

Deputies obtained surveillance photos of a person of interest from a nearby BP convenience store. Anyone who recognizes this man should call 911 or the sheriff’s office.
