The person in the photos is believed to have been responsible for thefts in the Hickory Hills neighborhood. Police said the homes impacted include those with open garage doors and unlocked cars. The suspect is also believed to have stolen a bicycle.
Florence Police said to make sure your car doors and the doors and windows to your homes are locked by 9 p.m. every night. They advised that turning on porch lights at night can also deter criminal behavior.
