MAYWOOD - Police in Maywood say a string of brazen daytime burglaries has plagued the town for weeks.

Police say there have been five burglaries since Sept. 24, with three alone in the last week. In the most recent incident, they say a burglar broke into a house around noon with the resident still inside. She apparently locked herself in a bathroom and called police, who then arrested the suspect.

Arrests have been made in four of the cases. So far, police have not made a link between any of the burglaries, but are still urging residents to continue to call in any suspicious activity.
