Police investigate a series of burglaries


Farmington police are investigating a series of burglaries that have resulted in thousands of dollars being stolen from homes in the downtown residential area of the community.

Police have connected at least four burglaries to the same set of suspects, Farmington police sergeant Lee Hollatz said. The burglaries have all happened in neighborhoods south of Elm Street, and the suspects have used the same method each time.
