Police are asking for the public’s help locating two suspects wanted for numerous burglaries in Portland.

Investigators said Suzanne Christine Crosse, 32, and Adam Richard Myers, 24, are wanted for burglarizing storage areas of residential buildings in the Pearl District and other areas of Portland.

People who live in the area say it's generally quiet and safe. But the recent string of burglaries might cause tenants to think twice when locking up their bikes and other valuables.

"It is very troublesome to see such a nice area like this. I know most of my neighbors here already and I've only been here for about a year and they all seem very friendly and everyone communicates," said Gordon Chen.

Chen says a person at his apartment building, The Parker, had a bike stolen from them in the last month or so.

"I know that our garage is one of those areas that is kind of easy to get into," Chen said.

Brendan Spencer says his car has been vandalized twice in the last several weeks. He says he isn’t shocked by petty crime.

“I wouldn’t see it as something that’d be surprising since it is one of the nicer areas, so it’s more of a target in my mind,” Spencer said.

Police said the suspects are homeless and frequent the downtown Portland area.

Crosse is a white woman, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Myers is a white man, 6 feet 1 inches tall and 160 pounds with brown hair, brown eyes, large holes in his ear lobes and numerous tattoos on his arms, including the Philadelphia skyline on his left forearm.

Police had previously identified a third person as a suspect in this investigation, but on Friday detectives said that man had been eliminated as a suspect. A third person is still being sought in connection with this case, but officers said he has not been identified. 

Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a cash reward up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest and tipsters can remain anonymous.
