Boulder police are warning residents series of vehicle break-ins where the suspects lift purses and wallets and then use stolen IDs to deposit and cash checks across the metro area.

Boulder police officials say the ring is believed to be responsible for $100,000 in thefts in more than 50 cases in the state, including three in Boulder.

Investigators said they believe two males break windows on cars when they see purses or wallets inside. The two men then deposit and cash checks using the stolen IDs.

In the past two weeks, the suspects have broken into vehicles somewhere in the Denver metro area every single day.

The men use disguises -- including wigs -- when dealing with banks. Police say the suspects use newer-model SUVs, including a mint-green Ford Explorer with tinted windows, a black Infinity SUV and a white SUV.
