Mobile Police need your help identifying two suspected car burglars and they say they're targeting a certain type of vehicle.

After dark and after hours -- a rash of car burglaries in the Oakleigh District has Mobile Police taking a close look at the two men seen in surveillance video.

"You can tell they are up to no good," said Cpl. LaDerrick DuBose.

While one guy is busy inside one vehicle, the other suspect can be seen "door-checking" another vehicle in the parking lot. However, it doesn't matter if they're locked. Police say most of the vehicles targeted have been convertibles or Jeeps.

"Anything with a soft top where they can use a blade or some type of box cutter to gain entry into the vehicle," said Cpl. DuBose.

The surveillance video was obtained by investigators who canvassed the nearby neighborhoods.

"If you commit a crime on say Street A but you may have went through a neighborhood, well we are going to check Street A and also check Street B… and the other street over and ask if they have surveillance cameras and if they do can they try to run between these times and see if you can see anything out of the ordinary," said DuBose.

Good detective work paid off. In addition to the video, they've obtained surveillance images of both suspects and the car they’re believed to be driving -- a late model Mitsubishi Eclipse (possibly a 2019 model).

It's more than enough to solve the crime -- if you know they are Mobile Police would love to hear from you at 251-208-7211.
