GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department is looking for someone they believe may be linked to several vehicle burglaries.

According to Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara, the burglaries occurred between July 14 and July 16. The suspect reportedly used bricks to break the window of the vehicles to gain entry.

Brisolara said on July 14 a vehicle at the 11000 block of Riverbend Drive in Gulfport was burglarized after someone had thrown a brick through the window.

And on July 16, another vehicle was burglarized in the same way at the 17000 block of Excalibur Circle.

A resident in that area had working surveillance cameras. Video from those cameras were given to investigators. They were able to come up with this description of the suspect: white male, 5'07" to 5'09" tall, thin build, 125 to 135 pounds. He has light colored hair. And was last seen wearing shorts and a striped pullover style shirt. Investigators said the suspect caught on camera was looking inside vehicles around the same area where the burglaries occurred.

Brisolara said the burglaries happened in subdivisions located on Orange Grove Road in Gulfport.

The sheriff is asking anyone with information into the burglaries or anyone who recognizes the suspect to contact the Harrison County Sheriff's Office at 228-865-7060 or Crimestoppers at 1-877-787-5898.

They hooked Mississippi's state flag underneath the American flag, and they raised both flags over the city hall grounds. And just like that, five days of debate over whether the state flag should fly in Ocean Springs temporarily came to an end.
