AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Investigators with the Aiken Department of Public Safety are asking for the public's help identifying two people wanted in connection with a string of car break-ins. 

Officers say items, including money and electronics, were stolen from about 20 unlocked vehicles in the River Bluff subdivision on April 17.

Detective Jeremy Hembree said, "We need everyone to lock their cars. It's a crime of opportunity. These victims are leaving items in plain view and they can be taken out of the car in 5 to six seconds."

Anyone with information related to the car break-ins or the identity of the people in the attached photos is asked to contact Crimestoppers of the Midlands at 1-888-CRIME-SC (1-888-274-6372).

Callers will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
