EL PASO, Texas – Police are asking for the public's help to find suspects in a string of burglaries at new homes in El Paso.

Police said the burglars are targeting refrigeration unites, major appliances and building materials.

The crimes have taken place since April, and they have occurred in finished or nearly finished homes in northeast, west and east El Paso.

Police believe the thieves park a truck or van inside the home's garage and load the vehicles with appliances. 

The incidents are believed to have occurred between the late afternoon and early morning hours. Several burglaries have taken place during the weekends, police said.

The burglars may appear to be working on the construction site.

Police officials are asking the public to report any suspicious activity happening at these sites. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915-566-8477 or online at
