Columbia police are investigating four burglaries over the past three months at two hotels.
The Comfort Inn on Garners Ferry Road and the Sleep Inn on East Exchange Boulevard have reported two incidents, police say.
In each incident, a man accessed a vacant room and took the flat-screen television, sometimes hiding it under a hotel bedsheet, police said. There have been no signs of forced entry into the rooms.
Investigators said they believe the suspect is in contact with a getaway driver, who waits near a rear exit.
Anyone with information is accessed to call Crimestoppers at (888) CRIME-SC.
