BREVARD COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Police in Brevard County are searching for bikini-wearing thieves in Melbourne Beach.

As beach goers relax by the sand and surf, deputies say, thieves are targeting their cars.

One of the crooks was seen on surveillance video still wearing her swimsuit. The bikini burglar and three others broke into at least two cars stealing wallets, an iPod and other personal items.

Investigators say the break-ins are occurring because beach goers are forgetting to lock up and leaving valuables out in the open.

Police say one of the crooks may be disabled because in all the surveillance pictures, he holds his arm in the exact same place.
