"A lot of time these people, this is not the only kind of crime they'll commit.  They're liable to get caught doing a crime similar to this, or something else.  They're going to be breaking into a business, or breaking into a home, stealing from a store, and if we get a suspect that matches these descriptions, that's when we'll pick back up on these.  We'll go meet with the victims and see if they can pick them out," said Springfield Deputy Chief Cliff Buscher.

Police have said they don't believe the two cases are related.
