PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Port St. Lucie police are looking for leads after a series of home burglaries.

Investigators said the homeowner returned home during the crime and the crook ran away to avoid being seen.

In three of the eight burglaries, a suspect vehicle was witnessed:

  • Silver/gray BMW sedan
  • Dark-tinted windows
