ALBION –  Police are investigating a string of burglaries the past two weeks in the village of Albion. Police Chief Roland Nenni advises residents to keep their doors and first-floor windows locked.

Residents are also urged to call 911 if they see suspicious activity.

“It’s very important to call while it’s going on,” Nenni said this morning. “People have observed suspicious activity and not called until the following day.”

The burglaries are taking place late at night and in the early morning hours. Burglars have cut out screens from windows to gain entry. In one instance, burglars removed an air-conditioning unit that wasn’t secure.

Village police have stepped up surveillance in recent days.

Nenni said burglars may strike outside the village as well.

“I have no doubt the suspects will go outside the village if they see an opportunity,” Nenni said.
