In the wake of a series of break-ins to Abbotsford homes, police have released a photo of a burglary suspect caught on surveillance video last week.

The Caucasian man, estimated to be between 25 and 45 years old, was on a mountain bike when he rode to the front door of an Abbotsford home at about 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16. The resident of the home in the Bateman area had a security video system installed.

The man appeared to be communicating to an accomplice via an earpiece, but was apparently scared away from the scene.

He was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, jeans, a baseball cap, sunglasses and gloves.  His bicycle had a white stem with large shocks on the front.

Abbotsford Police recently warned residents of a rash of break-ins in east Abbotsford, most of which have occurred during the day. The thieves have either accessed the homes through an unlocked window or have broken the pane of glass adjacent to the front door.

They have stolen cash, credit cards, jewelry and portable electronics.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.
