Police are releasing a short YouTube clip in the hopes of catching a man who has been breaking into houses in the Hollywood Hills.

The clip from Jan. 15 shows a man who is believed to be responsible for multiple break-ins in the swanky neighborhood, KTLA reports. The video shows the suspect knocking on the door of a home on the 2700 block of Cuesta Drive and walking around the front of the property. What's not shown in the video is the suspect scaling a fence and breaking into the house, stealing a bunch of electronics, according to the LAPD press release.

In the video, the suspect is wearing a white shirt, black Adidas pants and white sneakers. Police have described him as a Hispanic man in his 30s, about 5'6'' to 5'10'' and 200-210 pounds. Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to call Hollywood Burglary Detectives at 213-972-2929.
