WICHITA, Kansas -- Wichita police have a person of interest in a string of home burglaries
Since September 6th, 30 residential burglaries have been reported from I-235 to Meridian and Kellogg to 13th Street North.
Police say the normal average is around 10-15 a month.
Police say the burglars would kick in doors and take jewelry, cash, and game systems.
This morning, a homeowner spotted a man trying to break into his shed. He and the homeowner started fighting, and it was the suspect's blood trail back to a home where he was staying that eventually led police to him.
But, they're not sure just yet if he was acting alone, so police ask that people keep an eye out.
"It is occurring in the mornings either right after they leave for work or they leave in the morning to take the kids to school and come back within an hour or so and find that somebody's been in and out of the house," Capt. Rusty Leads, Wichita Police Department.
Police say the crimes mostly occur between 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.
