Police have looked at surveillance video and have a description of who they say may be responsible for seven smash and grab burglaries.

Three of the break-ins happened overnight on Sunday, two on the Redlands and one on 29 1/2 and Patterson.

The other four happened in city limits earlier this month.

In all seven instances there were "large quantities" of cigarettes stolen from gas station convenience stores, but nothing else was taken.

Police tell 11 News that in each instance there was an excess of one thousand dollars of cigarettes taken.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 6 feet tall and weighs around 175 pounds. He was wearing a black ski mask, black hoodie, dark pants and gloves at the time of the robberies.

Investigators tell 11 News they're looking into a similar burglary in Gypsum that happened last week and may be connected.
