MIDLAND - Brazen burglars are breaking into banks and doing it right in plain sight.

Now, Police are asking for your help tracking them down.

So far, the suspect or suspects have hit four banks, but those aren't only targets.

Midland Police tell NewsWest 9, this has been going on since the last day of October, and since banks are involved, the FBI is joining in on the investigation.

Right now, authorities say they have a person of interest they'd like to speak with

Four banks total have been broken into, all on the northwest side of the City of Midland.

Investigators say each case happened in a high traffic area, in plain sight, and the suspects disguise themselves as repairmen or workers so they don't draw attention to themselves.

We're told these burglars cut the telephone and power lines to knock out the alarm and surveillance systems.

Once inside, the thief or thieves vandalize the business and take cash, but they aren't just going for money.  

"Lately they have been taking rolled coins, a few hundred to a few thousand in rolled coins. So somewhere somebody is cashing in a bunch of rolled coins,” Sgt. David Garcia with the Midland Police Department, said.

Officials say along with the banks and credit unions, four other businesses have been burglarized, but authorities have not identified those businesses.

If you have any information on these burglaries, Police and the FBI need your help to crack the case,

CrimeStoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information regarding the case. 
Call 694-TIPS or 1-800-LOCK-UP.

No Caller ID is used and you will remain anonymous.
