LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thieves have been targeting homes in the Highlands, on a street where public figures such as Mayor Greg Fischer and Priscilla Barnstable Brown live.

There have been six burglaries in the past week. Police tell us the burglaries are taking place during the day, in what they believe to be crimes of opportunity.

On Saturday, thieves emptied out a home while the owner was doing yard work.

"Everything was gone up into the drawers. (They) took all jewelry any kind of box with memorabilia in it. Just everything was gone they weren't discriminating as long as it was small," said Highland resident Jodie Morgan.

Since the reported burglaries neighbors are locking their doors at all times, and even installing surveillance cameras.

If you have any information about these burglaries, call the police tip line at 574-LMPD.
