LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police are looking for a serial burglar who targets homes and cars and then goes on shopping sprees using stolen bank cards.

Police say the suspect shown in the surveillance photo strikes mainly at night, hoping to get his hands on items you have worked hard for.

He has been known to do use garage door openers from unlocked cars to gain access to homes, but also checks for unlocked doors or windows and steals anything of value.

Louisville Police have great surveillance video pictures of the suspect as he shops with his victims' credit cards, and now they are asking your help to find him.

Police say he's using the stolen cars at stores in Metro Louisville and Bullitt County. Police believe he may drive a silver or gold Dodge Intrepid.

If you recognize the man shown in the photo or think you know who he is, you're asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD (574-5673).
