The Auglaize County Sheriff's Office is investigating a recent rash of home burglaries in central and eastern Auglaize County.

The department has responded to six home burglaries in the last two weeks. The homes are being entered by force or breaking the glass of a door. The suspects are then entering and taking items. Electronics and guns have been reported stolen.

Sheriff Al Solomon asked residents with any information to contact detecives at the sheriff's office and urged residents to call 9-1-1 if they see or hear a suspicious vehicle or person in their area.

“We want people to call even if they think it is nothing," Solomon said. "We have had this before and even the smallest thing may lead to the identity of the suspects.  We also would ask anyone who may have a tip on who the suspects are to please call.  You can remain anonymous."
