State College police released additional photos Monday of two suspects wanted for multiple State Patty's Day burglaries.

Authorities hope the public can help identify the two males believed to be responsible for the burglaries that occurred overnight between March 1 and March 2.

Investigators pulled the images from surveillance video at the Meridian apartment building in the 600 block of East College Avenue.

Police released a few images one week ago and then several additional photos Monday, hoping Penn State students who recently returned from spring break may be able to identify the suspects.

Police say surveillance images shows two suspects entering roughly a dozen apartments during a fire alarm. Since then, at least two victims from the Meridian have reported burglaries to police.

Police are also investigating a similar incident at University Towers in the 400 block of East College Avenue where two suspects reportedly entered an apartment and stole cash. Police believe the incidents may be connected.

Anyone who can identify the suspects can contact State College police at 814-234-7150.
