— Lewisburg Police said Friday that the suspect responsible for a string of car break-ins in Lewisburg is still at-large.

The person is entering unlocked vehicles parked on Mayapple Trail, Circle Drive and other streets in the Rolling Hills subdivision, taking money left in the car.

On a surveillance video obtained by police, a male suspect is seen trying the handle of a parked vehicle and walking away to other cars in the neighborhood once he discovers the vehicle is locked.

Police released the video to the public Thursday, but on Friday had not made an arrest. Officials urged anyone with information to contact LPD at 304-645-1626 and to lock their car doors.
