GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Investigators are on the lookout for a man who was caught on camera breaking into multiple cars at an auto sales shop in Goose Creek.

The break-ins happened at the Kash Saver auto sales at 201 South Goose Creek Blvd. in the early morning hours of Feb. 21.

The suspect is described as a white male with a thin build and between 5-foot and 6-feet tall.

According to police, the suspect was driving a white Honda Accord, 2002 or 2003 model.

Police released a picture of the suspect's vehicle which has a rear spoiler, sunroof, and fog lights.

The investigation started when police responded to the auto business on Monday and met an employee at the shop.

The employee said someone had attempted to steal a truck, and stole items from cars on the lot.

According to the employee, she left the car lot on Feb. 20 at 4 p.m., returned on Monday at 10:30 a.m. and noticed multiple vehicles had been tampered with.

In addition, a police report states some vehicles had items missing and a truck was stuck in the back of the lot that someone attempted to steal. Authorities said they located a Ice House beer can lying in the front seat.

Officers also located an online banking paper and a wrench in other vehicles.

The officer reported someone opened the unlocked doors and went through the interior.

According to police, among those missing from the vehicles were center consoles/gear selectors from two Honda Accords, a driver side door panel and am/fm radio from a Champagne Honda Accord, and interior VIN decals from a Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Malibu.

Officers said twelve vehicles were tampered with.
