Police investigated several burglaries Friday, saying that two brothers may have been involved in at least two of the break-ins.
In the first, which occurred at about 10:30 a.m., a side door to a South Avenue home was kicked in and burglars ransacked the entire residence, police said.
The female resident estimated her loss at more than $1,500. She told officers gold chains and rings had been taken, along with a combination digital video disc/videocassette recorder.
Police found some of the woman's DVDs in a lawn across the street.
Within an hour of that break-in, a Pierce Avenue home was entered by removing a board from a window, police said. Two televisions, a DVD player, VCR and some stereo speakers were stolen, along with a bag full of clothing.
Police questioned two men in connection with the break-ins and were attempting to locate a third, but no charges had been filed as of Saturday evening.
Officers also investigated a break-in on North Avenue, where a former tenant was suspected of stealing three long guns from a bedroom safe. The guns were valued at $1,900.
A Ferry Avenue man told police that someone burglarized his home between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. Friday, stealing a cellular telephone and a 54-inch television set.
