The Dallas Police Department is seeking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect wanted for several residential burglaries of homes in the M Street area.

The man's image was captured on security video and the police have released his photo in the hopes of identifying him.

The first incident took place on January 30 between 11:55 am and 12:15 pm, when the suspect broke into a residence in the 5800 block of Ellsworth Street. He entered the property via a back door and took several items of property.

According to the offense report, the suspect even helped himself to some ice cream from the victim's freezer.

Disappointingly, the report does not specify which flavor.

The suspect was caught on security video both inside and outside the victim's residence.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 40 to 45 years old, with brown hair and a medium build. He was wearing a mesh ball cap with the words "On the Fly" on the front.

The suspect also burglarized another house on the same day, in the 6100 block of Kenwood Avenue, sometime between 7 am and 4:45 pm. The suspect again broke into the residence through a back door and took several items of property.

Detectives gathered surveillance video from the area that shows the suspect riding a yellow rental bicycle into the victim's yard and then leaving minutes later on the bicycle with a bag of property.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Detective Scott Hopkins at the Central Investigative Unit at 214-670-5760 or scott.hopkins@dpd.dallascityhall.com.
