February 16, 2011 |  7:55 am

The Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday released video of a suspect that detectives believe is responsible for a string of burglaries on the Westside along the L.A.-Santa Monica border.

The LAPD said the burglaries began in October.

"Most of the burglaries have targeted storage units in parking structures, although detectives believe the same suspect is also responsible for several grand thefts, stealing property from parked vehicles and various petty theft crimes," officials said in a statement. "At one of the more recent incidents, a suspect was seen entering an underground parking structure where his image was captured on camera by a security surveillance system."

Detectives are releasing the video with hopes that someone might recognize the suspect or that more victims might come forward.

Anyone with information is urged to call  310-444-1524 or 310-444-1522.
