Biloxi police are searching for the suspects involved with multiple car robberies at the 1800 block of Beach Blvd.
On Feb. 11, officers received numerous complaints of vehicles being broken into at Big Play Entertainment Center in Biloxi, as well as nearby areas.
The two suspects are believed to be African-American men. Images from video surveillance shows what is believed to be a newer model dark-colored Lincoln MKZ driving to several other vehicles.
Victims report missing many personal items from their cars.
