WILLIAMSTOWN - Authorities in Williamstown are cautioning residents after two day-time burglaries occurred on Wednesday.
Someone entered the houses at 412 Henderson Ave. and 404 Dodge Ave., the residences of Victoria Brown and Bill Lane, respectively, where electronics, pills and money were taken, Police Chief B.D. Adkins said.
The burglaries occurred during the day and were discovered and reported after the victims returned home, he said.
An undetermined amount of money and pills were taken from the Dodge Avenue residence, Adkins said. A laptop computer, an electronic book, a Wii and remotes, an Apple media player and a video game were taken from Henderson Avenue, he said.
Police have no leads, he said. The homes are several blocks from each other, Adkins said.
No sign of forced entry was found at the Henderson Avenue residence, he said. A back door was kicked in at the Dodge Avenue residence, Adkins said.
Witnesses can contact the police department at 304-375-4935.
Residents should keep their homes secured and keep an eye on what's happening, he said.
"Tell people to lock their doors and be vigilant," Adkins said.
In September, Adkins warned residents to lock their cars after someone went through unlocked vehicles, probably looking for money or anything that could be quickly converted into cash to buy drugs, Adkins said.
A dozen unlocked cars were entered in the Poplar and West Fourth streets area near Fenton Art Glass.
