FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Frankfort police say they need the public's help to solve what they are an unpredictable string of home break-ins.
Police say the number of break-ins are unusually high, and there is little rhyme or reason behind the victims' homes.
Police say they have responded to at least 10 home burglaries in the last two weeks. The one common trend they are finding is that the break-ins occur between 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Investigators say the thief or thieves have already stolen lawn mowers, weed eaters, power tools, cash and jewelry.
Detectives are now stepping up their patrol in hopes of catching the culprit or culprits.
Police are sharing advice to those who may believe they have been a target of a burglary.
"You never want to go in if you think someone may have went in your home. Let us come and check it out," Capt. Chris Quire explains, "Our response time is typically five minutes or less. So, back up, get where you can see, and just wait for the police to get there. Let us check and make sure no one has been in there or is still in there."
Police also say it's important just to take notice of anything out of the ordinary going on in your neighborhood. If you notice something is a little off, you are asked to give them a call.
