    Quincy police are trying to track down at least two burglary suspects after a string of dinnertime break-ins across the city over the past two weeks.

    The suspects, who were captured on surveillance video wearing masks, first struck on Nov. 21, forcing their way into a home through a back door before stealing jewelry and cash.

    Since Monday, when the burglaries resumed after a brief hiatus, there have been four additional break-ins.

    Police said residents should report any suspicious activity.

    “If you see somebody maybe knock on your neighbor’s door,” Sgt. Karyn Barkas said. “If they don’t answer, maybe the person goes to the back — starts heading up toward the back of the house.”

    The suspects hit the following streets: Puritan Drive, North Central Avenue, Adams, Tyler, Everett and Belmont Streets.

    In one instance, a homeowner walked in on the suspects, who then ran out the door.

    Police said the suspects usually strike between 4 and 9 p.m.

    “It’s what goes on at this time of year,” Quincy resident Chris Connors said. “It’s a sad thing to say.”

    Police said there may be a third suspect.

    Anyone with information regarding the break-ins is asked to call the Quincy Police Detectives Unit at 617-745-5764.
