VENICE - The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is asking for assistance identifying a suspect seen at the site of a Venice home burglary.

The home was burglarized three times since September.

Surveillance video shows a late model Subaru Forrester with what appears to be a New York license plate driving on and off the East Venice Avenue property with two occupants inside.

Another camera captured a white male about 6’ 2” tall, 280 pounds, wearing a long sleeve shirt, shorts and a hat.
