A security camera caught images of two suspects in a rash of thefts from cars that took place over the weekend in North Suffolk.

The two are described as white males in their late teens or early 20s, according to a news release from the city. The thefts occurred in the early morning hours on Monday.

A string of similar incidents took place in Carrollton the last two weekends, but it is unknown if the two groups are related to each other, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said earlier this week.
