WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Sheriff is asking residents to lock their doors and secure all basement and main floor windows after more nighttime burglaries were reported Monday.
According to Sheriff Dan Hartog, additional reports of nighttime burglaries were taken today from residents in Lake Lillian and Pennock.
The additional incidents are believed to be related to a string of nine burglaries Thursday in Kandiyohi, according to a news release from Hartog.
Similar to the Kandiyohi incidents, someone entered occupied homes overnight and took money, wallets and purses.
In addition to locking doors and windows, the sheriff suggests leaving lights on to deter criminal activity.
If anyone sees any suspicious actively in their neighborhood during the late night or early morning hours, they are asked to call the sheriff's office immediately with that information. The phone number is 911 or 235-1260.
