Police need your help finding two suspects accused of burglarizing over 75 businesses, in what police are calling the Night Owl Series.  

13 Action News first told you about scanner traffic weeks ago, when we first started hearing about restaurants being targeted.  Now we know the Night Owl Series is the string of burglaries that has had police just one step behind a group of criminals.  

Investigators say the burglaries began in Nov. 2015. 

Police say the suspects gain entry to the buildings by breaking the glass of the front doors to the business, or entering a drive through window.
 
These crimes have been taking place between the hours of 12 and 4 a.m.
 
The suspects can only be described as black male adults in their 20’s with short hair. Both of them have short goatees or beards and wear hoodies to conceal their identities.

They're the same suspects that appeared in surveillance video released by a taco shop after they were burglarized.  The taco shop made a YouTube video after the break-in that's already been viewed over 4,000,000 times.
 
Detectives are still seeking to identify and locate the two men.
 
"Our perpetrators are causing more financial damage than they're even getting in the theft," says Ltn. Nick Farese with Metro's Northwest Area Command.  
 
Information leading to the positive identification of the suspects may result in a reward of up to $1,000.
 
If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
 
Tips leading directly to an arrest or indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a cash reward.
