West-side neighborhood site of multiple break-ins

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police and residents of one west-side neighborhood are on alert after a series of break-ins. 

Three burglaries happened in one neighborhood last week. 

Tucson Police are saying the method of break-in was the same in two of the cases.  Windows were smashed to get inside. Thieves are taking items like TVs and jewelry.

Residents told police they saw two people running away from the home and driving away in an older gray vehicle. This is all the information police have right now. 

TPD is saying that when homes are targeted in the same neighborhood, it is likely the same person or group. 

Neighbors in this area are on high alert.  One of the residents, whose home was broken into, got the call when her family was on vacation.

"It's made us more aware, talk to our neighbors and get a security system and just live in fear for now," said the woman, who asked that her identity not be known.   

These are the steps police are asking residents to take, to watch out for each other and report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. 

Nobody has been hurt in any of these crimes. 

Tucson Police ask if you see or suspect anything in your neighborhood, day or night don't think twice, call 911 or 88-CRIME.
