VANCOUVER -- The suspect in two early morning Vancouver burglaries was caught on surveillance camera and police are asking for help finding him.

In each robbery, the suspect smashed a glass door with a brick to get inside, said Sgt. Jay Alia of the Vancouver Police Department.

At 5 a.m. Sunday, the man broke into the Walgreen's in the 9700 block of East Mill Plain Boulevard and stole hundreds of dollars worth of individual Camel cigarette packs and some e-cigarettes, Alia said.

Monday at about the same time, police believe the same man broke into the Lil Q Food Store, at 8510 E. Mill Plain Blvd. He again stole only e-cigarettes and Camel packs, but no cartons and no other brands, Alia said.

In that case, he reportedly also took one 24-ounce bottle of Corona.

He was wearing jeans, a gray jacket and a mask. Anyone who knows the suspect or has information about the burglaries is asked to call Vancouver police.
