String of break-ins out for jewelry: Residents take caution

Three residential break-ins kept the Rochester Police Department busy this past weekend.

From Thursday, March 21 through Sunday, March 24, the break-ins took place in the 1500 block of Pondside Court, 1400 block of Ramblewood Drive and in the 1600 block of Chase Drive.

All three thefts included forced entry through home windows and jewelry was the common target.
