    Mercer County Sheriff's Deputies said they're asking for the public's help to track down a man who broke into a home plus several vehicles, outbuildings and garages last week.

    They said the incident happened on the night of June 11, 2014 in the Quail Valley community outside of Princeton.

    One neighbor who lives near the house that was broken into captured images of the man on surveillance cameras.

    The neighbor said the incident happened around 4 a.m. and he was woken up by his dog.

     As you can see in these pictures the suspect went up to a few cars in his driveway and attempted to open the doors.

     Mercer County Sheriff's Deputies said before this happened, the suspect actually went inside another home on the same street while the people inside were sleeping and came out with some of the homeowner's personal belongings.

     Deputies said the man also broke into several out-buildings in the neighborhood.

    Deputies said they do believe this man is working alone in the thefts but at this point all they know is he's skinny, and about 6 feet tall.

    If you have any information about the incident, you're asked to call the Mercer County Sheriff's Department.
