Montreal police are asking for the public's help in identifying suspects tied to about 20 break-ins and robberies in Hampstead and Montreal West in recent months.

The suspects, men between the ages of 18 and 23, primarily stole jewelry from homes between June 3 and Sept. 7, according to police

Police say the suspects operate during the day while residents are out of the house. One stands guard, and another rings the doorbell. When no one answers, one suspect will enter through the back door and let his accomplices in afterward.
