For those who like to hit the gym for a work out, may want to rethink where they lock up their valuables.

Tucson Police say a number of locker thefts have been reported at local gyms and they need the public's help figuring out who may be responsible.

Platinum Fitness, near Speedway and Craycroft is just one of five eastside gyms that have reported belongings being stolen since August.

TPD believes several people may be involved in the thefts and have surveillance photos for the public to look at.   TPD believe that the three men pictured in the photos may be involved in one or more of the thefts.  According to TPD the thefts have occurred in both the men's and women's locker rooms. 

Since August, at least 12 reports have been made by victims who secured their personal belongings in gym lockers, went to exercise and returned to find their belongings gone.

In some cases credit cards were taken and used at nearby stores before the victims finished their workout.

Also keys have been taken out of lockers and items stolen from the victim's car. 

The following gyms have been targets:

LA Fitness near Wilmot and Broadway; LA Fitness near Golf Links and Harrison; Platinum Fitness near Golf Links and Harrison; Desert Fitness near Pantano Road and Tanque Verde.
