FLORENCE, Ala. - Police are trying to identify a burglary suspect caught on camera this past weekend. Thieves hit numerous businesses stealing anything they could get their hands on.

Florence police are trying to figure out who this guy is.

A surveillance camera captured this image moments before the burglary suspect disabled it.

Investigators say late Friday into early Saturday morning they hit several businesses.

Some of those include Pizza Hut on Cox Creek, Cash Express on Darby Drive, and Hermanos Market on Mall Road.
