Investigators are still not sure if it's the same suspect, or a few different people who are involved in the crime spree, but they are looking for a man who was seen in surveillance footage from a Ring doorbell.

One person living in the area said he had about $5,000 worth of unauthorized charges on his credit card after it was stolen from one of his vehicles.

Another woman told NBC10 Boston that several vehicles belonging to members of her family were ransacked.

Police are reminding people to lock their vehicles, and ask anyone with information to call 781-942-6755.
