SPARTA, Mich. -- Investigators with the Sparta Police Department are working to identify a suspect they believe is linked to several business break-ins during the summer of 2014.

The six incidents connected to this investigation happened in July and August, and all of them occurred well after dark.

The suspect is believed to be a white male, approximately 5'10" to 6'0" tall with a medium build.  He's believed to be in either his late 20's or early 30's.

Investigators say he was riding a bicycle in at least one of two of the incidents.  Police also believe the suspect was living in the Sparta area at the time of the crimes.

Anyone who may recognize the suspect in the surveillance that has been released is asked to call either the Sparta Police Department at 616-887-7331 or Silent Observer at 616-454-9110.
