West Melbourne Police are trying to track down a serial burglar accused of three dozen thefts since July 1.

  • Man sought who police say has been opening unlocked cars
  • Police say he's the same man seen riding off on girl's bike

Police put out a bulletin with security camera pictures from a home in the Eber and Hollywood Boulevard area. In the pictures, the man is seen taking a little girl's bike and riding away.

The bike was found a couple blocks from the home.

The man has stolen change and other items out of at least 35 unlocked cars during the past few weeks, police say. He's described as having a shaved head and beard, plus a distinctive tattoo on his right forearm.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, you're asked to call West Melbourne Police or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
