Wichita police question a man in connection with a series of burglaries on the city's west side.
Between September and October, there have been more than 30 burglaries in the areas between I-235 to Meridian and Kellogg to 13th. That's about a 48% increase of burglaries in that area.
Police say those burglaries are happening between five in the morning and one in the afternoon, Monday through Thursday.
Burglars are looking for unlocked door or doors they can kick in or knock open. They then take jewelry, cash and gaming systems.
"I had some little jewelry boxes and they just scattered everything on the bed," said Geneva Minter, who was burglarized in October. "If they took anything it wasn't worth anything, just to me."
Police are asking residents to keep an eye out in the Orchard Park, Sunflower Business and La Placita Park areas. If you see anything suspicious, call police.
"We need as many eyes and ears looking for suspicious activity," said Wichita Police Captain Rusty Leeds.
