WESTLAKE, Ohio — The Westlake Police Department is investigating a series of home burglaries that have occurred in the last week.

There have been five burglaries at unoccupied homes since Jan. 22, most of which have occurred in the west end of the city, police said.

Police said that the break-ins are happening between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. and that the individuals involved have been seen with flashlights walking through backyards.

At this time, police have no one in custody for the burglaries and are still working to develop better descriptions of the individuals involved or an involved vehicle.
