SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kansas --
A series of burglaries in the rural areas of both northern and southern Sedgwick County have police asking for the public's help.
There've been 22 burglaries in the past month, 11 of those in the last two weeks and 5 of them reported just this past Tuesday.
"We have some we believe are connected based on the proximity, the time of day, what was taken, also the method of entry," explains Sedgwick County's Captain Greg Pollock.
Investigators say the majority of the burglaries happened along the Sedgwick County line between Rock and Woodlawn to the north, and in the area of Oliver and 138th to the south.
"Electronics, large screen TV set, the computers, some weapons, both rifles and handguns and jewelry is another big item," says Pollock.
After a break-in last year, one homeowner near south Oliver set-up a security camera that recently captured this video of an unknown person on their property the same day their home was burglarized again.
Take a close look.
"Right now we have to consider this person of interest, we really don't know what their role is, if they're connected to this burglary, we just know they were at the house the day the burglary was committed," says Pollock.
He says rashes of burglaries aren't all that uncommon in Sedgwick County.
"What's different about this is they're clustered, that tells us they're hitting areas, instead of where they would hit one or two homes they're hitting multiple homes in these areas, also that's a little different than what we saw last year in the same time frame."
So investigators ask anyone who recognizes this man to call them.
They also ask homeowners to be vigilant and call 911 if they see anything unfamiliar or suspicious.
"We've had some reports of persons that don't belong in the area but we haven't been able to associate any of that info with any of the reports of burglaries," says Pollock.
An obvious reminder for homeowners to keep their doors locked and investigators suggest telling your neighbors when you'll be gone.
So if they see anything suspicious while you're away they can call police.
