HAZARD — Hazard Police Department (HPD) is asking the public’s help in identifying two suspects they believed broke into several homes on July 20-21.
“We take it personally,” said Capt. Paul Campbell of the alleged burglars targeting Hazard citizens.
Campbell said while residents losing their belongings is a crime in itself, the suspects also stripped the residents of feeling safe in their own homes.
HPD is doing everything they can to make sure the suspects are brought to justice, Campbell said. There is currently several officers working on the case.
“We want to make sure the victims feel safe again,” Campbell
Both suspects are described as being male, with one suspect wearing a blue and white striped shirt and the other wearing a sweatshirt with a unique design on it.
ATM’s at a local businesses were able to capture photos of the alleged burglars right after the break-ins happened.
HPD shared the photos on their Facebook asking for the public’s help.
The break-ins happened around 11:45 p.m. on July 20 and 7:52 p.m. on July 21, Campbell said.
Campbell said the next thing HPD will be doing is moving forward with the facts and the evidence obtained against the suspects.
“We will not stop till we find the persons who did this,” said Campbell.
