Four home burglaries in two days. Now, Derby police are warning residents to be watchful of suspicious activity. The burglaries happened last week, all early in the morning shortly after residents left their house.
The first happened in the 1700 block of N. Woodlawn. Burglars got in through the garage and ransacked the house. They then left in the homeowners 2002 Blazer. Jerry Sander's who lives a few doors down says everyone in the neighborhood keeps an eye on things, but no one saw the break-in. "It gives me some concern, it could happen to me," Sander's said.
Police are concerned. It's unusual to have so many home burglaries in such a short amount of time. They think burglars are watching neighborhoods and targeting homes once residents leave. "If you see someone hanging around that doesn't belong there, give us a call," said Captain Doug Chambers.
