The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help identifying a suspect and vehicle connected to residential burglaries near Swift and Wilkinson roads in Sarasota. On Sunday, 9/22/2013, a teen reported hearing someone knock on the door of his Murdock Avenue home but didn’t answer. Moments later a man broke in through a sliding door but fled when he saw the boy inside. Less than a half mile away on Foremere Place, the same subject attempted another burglary but was scared off by a neighbor. The photo above shows the suspect getting into a car, which witnesses say was a small white or silver four-door sedan driven by a woman.
