Gaston County Police are investigating a series of car break-ins and the theft of a pickup truck, all of which officers say are related to each other.

According to officers, the break-ins and car thefts happened between Sept. 29 and Oct. 1st, hitting a handful of homes across the county. Most of the homes involved had Gastonia addresses.

A video and photo were posted to the department's Instagram page on Wednesday. The photo shows a 1995 Ford Ranger pickup truck with the license plate BLX-7040. The truck, which is two-toned red and white, was stolen from a home along Ferguson Ridge Road recently.

The surveillance video shows two suspects tied to a car break-in along Pintail Way. One suspect appears to be a male wearing sweatpants, a sweatshirt, and toboggan, while the other suspect can't be seen clearly. The video was taken at night, thus it appears in greyscale.

The video came from a neighbor who was not apparently targeted, as Gaston County Police said the video caught them around the same time the break-in reportedly happened.
