SCARBOROUGH — Police here are urging residents to take extra care in making sure their homes are locked.

From Oct. 1 through Nov. 7, nine homes and two commercial buildings in the town were burglarized, according to police reports.

“That’s quite a few for one month,” said Sgt. Rick Rouse on Monday.

Rouse said charges have been filed against one suspected burglar, and officers are close to arresting two others. He did not believe any of the burglaries were related.

Many of the burglaries took place during the day when residents weren’t home, Rouse said. He stressed the importance of locking doors and of neighbors being vigilant if they see strangers lurking on nearby properties.
