A string of burglaries continues in Naperville, where police said $37,350 in jewelry was taken Tuesday from a home on the 2200 block of Comstock Lane.

Police believe two people or groups of people likely are responsible for 11 residential burglaries reported during the past two weeks, Sgt. Louis Cammiso said.

One burglar or crew of burglars appear to be striking during the day, often forcing entry and targeting homes located generally on the city's north and west sides. Another group seems to be operating at night, usually entering unlocked homes on the south end of town while residents are sleeping, he said.

The Comstock Lane burglary happened between 11:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Cammiso said no one was home at the time and the door was left open when someone stole the jewelry.

In other burglaries, laptops, iPods, iPads, cash and even a car have been reported stolen.

"It's anything that they can get their hands on," Cammiso said.

Police do not have any suspects in the burglaries. They are counting on the public to report suspicious people or vehicles so officers can come check them out in the hopes of finding leads.

A crime stoppers reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the an arrest for any of the recent Naperville burglaries, first offered Aug. 28, still stands, Cammiso said. Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call (630) 420-6006.
