A recent string of home burglaries continues to worry residents in the town of Dewitt. Local police are trying to stop this unusual crime spree.
The three break-ins in the Town of DeWitt this week alone are indicative of a trend that has been increasing since early this summer. Dewitt Police Lieutenant John Anton says the houses have been broken into at times of the day people are not typically home. He says it is possible one group could be behind the burglaries… and many of them seem to follow a pattern.
