Law enforcement says the neighborhoods of Fairfield, Henderson, parts of Harris and 14th and  Wabash Streets have been hardest hit.

Suspects have been forcing open rear doors or windows, accessing houses through open garages or alleys. Authorities are encouraging homeowners to be proactive in protecting themselves by making sure all doors and windows are locked, getting to know their neighbors and reporting any suspicious persons or activity.
