MIDLAND - There has been a string of break-ins in Midland and Police need your help tracking down the culprit.

The first two break-ins happened back on New Year's Eve, but the suspects apparently lost their nerve when they found out the home wasn't empty.      

The first suspect is described as being in his late 20's, 5'8" and 165 pounds. He has shoulder length, black hair, in corn rows, and was last seen wearing a red shirt. 

On the night of December 31st, the suspects kicked open the door of a home on Woodhaven, and then an hour later, they did the same thing at a home on Cimarron.

We're told the suspects never went inside either house.

They fled the scene as soon as they realized someone was home. 

Then on January 3rd, three white males kicked in a door on west Dengar. 

Police say when the man inside the home confronted them in the hallway, he was attacked. 

Police are still investigating whether all of these break-ins are connected, since no one went inside the homes in the first two break-ins. 

We're told the suspect may be driving a Ford king ranch style long bed pick-up. 

Anyone with any information is urged to call Midland Police at 685-7108 or Midland Crime Stoppers at 694-TIPS.
