Four house burglaries reported Tuesday in south Warren County are the latest in a string of 10 thefts south of Interstate 20 this month, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

“We cannot say for sure that the burglaries are related,” he said this morning, “but there are indicators suggesting that.”

In each of Tuesday’s burglaries, a door was smashed in and burglars took electronics. In one, jewelry was taken, and in another, artworks were taken.
