Police have released an image of a person who is believed to have broken into a Cottage Grove homeowner's garage and stolen a Jeep Wrangler and a number of other items. 

According to Cottage Grove police, a burglary was reported around 5 a.m. Thursday at a home in the south metro suburb, though a specific location was not revealed. The department says two suspects burglarized the garage while people were home at the time. 

They stole two electric scooters, power tools and a 2010 white Jeep Wrangler Limited that was parked outside. The vehicle has Minnesota license plates 6010AC, according to police.  

"Several minutes later, the suspects went to a nearby gas station where the stolen vehicle was fueled, and they left without paying," police said. 

Anyone who spots the stolen vehicle or who can provide any information about the suspect pictured is urged to contact Cottage Grove PD at 651-439-9381. Callers can reference case number CG21014677.
