NORTH CAROLINA -- Investigators from multiple law enforcement agencies are searching for a man linked to several break-ins and theft.

Todd Emerson Collins has multiple arrest warrants out for him in Yadkin County, Mount Airy, Surry County and Wilkes County. Officers believe the theft started last fall in Surry County and as recent as a few weeks ago in Wilkes County.

Wilkes County sheriff says, Collins has been breaking into vacation homes. He now believes there may be more places broken into that they aren't aware of.

"Well that's it. A whole lot of people don't visit these places that often and I'm sure there's some out there that they've just not realized that they've been broken into because they've not been to these places," Wilkes County Sheriff Chris Shew said.

Collins has 54 warrants out for his arrests. In Surry county he has 29 charges. Sheriff Shew said he is expected to charge him with more in the coming days.
