Bainbridge Island police released two sketches of suspects who may have been involved in a string of residential burglaries on the island since early March.

Police Chief Matthew Hamner said Wednesday the illustrations were prepared by a police sketch artist with another agency. The sketches were prepared on April 15 and April 17, after more burglaries were reported on the island, and witnesses to the earlier burglaries provided detailed descriptions to police.

One of the suspects is believed to be a serial burglar, Hamner said.

Roughly two dozen burglaries have been reported on Bainbridge Island since March.

In six of the burglaries, the intruder entered through an unlocked door. The burglar forced his way into homes in some of the other cases.

The intruder has made off with laptop computers, three firearms and other easy-to-carry items.

"It's what they can carry in one load," Hamner said.

Residents are asked to call 911 if they have information on the suspects.
