Lorain police are searching for the burglars responsible for breaking into 30 storage sheds in just the past two weeks.

Investigators said the crooks took more than 100 pieces of high priced home maintenance equipment; lawn mowers, snow blowers, string trimmers and chain saws,

Lorain police reported in some cases the suspects would pull their vehicles up on the lawn and search for properties that did not have fencing around the storage shed.

Many of these burglaries took place in the early morning hours, in all parts of the city,

Lorain investigators are working on a number of good leads in this case, and are asking victims to come forward if they happen to have home surveillance video of their break-in.

If you have any information about this case, you are being asked to contact the Lorain Detective Bureau.
