The Leavenworth Police Department is investigating a string of burglaries that have been reported in the city in recent weeks.

About 15 burglaries, most of them at residences, have been reported in Leavenworth during the last three or four weeks, said Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Nicodemus does not know if the same culprits are responsible for all of the burglaries, but he said it is likely that several of the cases are related.

He said the burglars have struck in multiple areas of the city.

A variety of items have been taken during the burglaries.

“It's anything of value,” Nicodemus said.

The deputy chief recommends that people keep an eye on their neighbors’ properties. In many of the burglaries, the culprits have entered residences from the back, such as off of alleys.
