The Orange County Sheriff's Department on Thursday released video footage in hopes that the public can help detectives identify a trio suspected of burglarizing multiple homes in recent weeks in the unincorporated Rossmoor community.
The three-man crew caught on video Tuesday trying to enter a home in the 2800 block of Tigertail Drive is believed connected to at least five burglaries in the area that began Dec. 10, in which electronics, cash and jewelry were stolen, sheriff's officials said.
The video cuts off after one man is shown tampering with the camera.
Suspects matching the description of the men seen on the video were spotted testing the front doors of some homes, and, in one case, entering a house while the homeowners were present. One of the suspects entered the home multiple times claiming to be lost, sheriff's officials said.
Anyone with information about the suspects' identities or whereabouts was asked to call (714) 647-7064. Anonymous tips can be phoned in to Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS.
