Since the end of May there have been four residential burglaries in the same general area of town. Because this is beginning to trend we want to get the facts out to as many residents as possible. We have been working these cases since the first one occurred. Just late last week we identified a possible link between some of these incidents. Below you will find a brief synopsis of each burglary:
