Police are asking the public's help in identifying two men who they said committed several burglaries at area businesses in the past few months.

The suspects forced entry into a business, usually a convenience store, by breaking the front door. They then entered and stole Newport cigarettes and lottery tickets.

Businesses victimized by these two men include Star Mart, Family Dollar, Gate Way and Mickey's.

One suspect is described as a black male with a heavy build, weighing between 200 and 230 pounds. The man is about 6 feet tall and has a mustache.

The other suspect is a black male, also 6 feet tall, weighing between 190 and 200 pounds.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about these burglaries or the suspects to contact Crime Stoppers by calling (254) 526-8477, going to www.killeencrimestoppers.com or texting KILLEEN and the tip to 274637.

All tips are anonymous, and a tip leading to an arrest may be eligible for a reward.
