A string of burglaries in Middletown has police asking residents to be vigilant.

In the last few months, 15 burglaries have been reported. Last week, police say three were reported on the same day. Residents say they are concerned for their safety.

Police say they are confused as to how the burglaries are occurring unnoticed in this neighborhood. Police say they have two important pieces of information about the burglaries. All of the break-ins occurred in broad daylight and in each case the robbers entered the homes by either forcing open a back door or a back window.
