MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va.—

Three burglaries just three days apart are being investigated in Moundsville.

Chief Tom Mitchell said the burglaries, being classified as a home invasion, happened Thursday, July 25 on Center St., Saturday July 27 on Fostoria Ave., and Monday on Second Street.

"We have seen an increase of crime, but our rate of solving these crimes is up as well," said Mitchell.

According to reports, an elderly female called police after she saw a person inside her Second Street home. There, only some cash was taken.

On Fostoria Avenue, $700 was stolen and some jewelry.

Police believe both of those crimes are connected, because the burglar forced their way in with a tool using the back door.

If anyone has information about the burglaries, call the anonymous Crimebusters tipline at 800-862-BUST or crimebusters@wtov.com.
