Provincial police are asking for the public's help solving a rash of break-ins at Muskoka businesses.

According to the OPP, suspects broke a window at a Huntsville business on West Road on Friday.

Police say the suspects stole an undisclosed amount of money.

They say another break-in occurred between 2 p.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday, this time at a Bay Street business in Lake of Bays.

Police say thieves broke a glass door and made off with items and cash.

On Sunday, around 12:40 a.m., police say a third break-in happened at a business on Lindgren Road West in Huntsville, where again, suspects broke a window to get inside and left with various items.

Police say security cameras captured images of two suspects involved in the Lindgren Road West break-in.

One suspect wore a hoodie with a light-coloured top and black bottom, baggy grey jogging pants and black VANS-style shoes.

The other suspect wore a dark hoodie with a red shirt underneath, black pants and blue sneakers.

It's unclear if the same suspects are involved in all three break-ins.

Police urge anyone with information on the break-ins and thefts to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous. Top Stories
