Pasco deputies are looking for the suspects behind a string of car break-ins over the weekend. Most of those crimes happened in the Lone Star Ranch subdivision in Spring Hill.

Investigators told ABC Action News the crimes were well organized and made up of a pretty large group. Deputies are looking for about five suspects.

Over the weekend, the suspects went through the Lone Star Ranch neighborhood looking for unlocked car doors. The entire thing was caught on home surveillance cameras.

It shows the five suspects involved walking from vehicle to vehicle. If the doors were left unlocked, they went in and grabbed valuable items.

Investigators are also looking into a similar crime in Wesley Chapel where two guys were caught on camera breaking into a van at a gas station.

Investigators are trying to determine if the crimes are connected.

Deputies told ABC Action News these crimes should served as another warning this morning to make sure you keep those car doors locked and also keep valuables out of plain sight.
