Caraway police investigating several break-ins

CARAWAY, AR (KAIT) - Caraway police are telling residents to lock their doors after a series of break-ins in the past month.

Police Chief William Hicks said about 16 vehicles were broken into and one home.

"It's getting bad," said Caraway resident, Susan Boone. 

She has lived on School Street most of her life and said she has never had to deal with any break-ins.

"I don't really feel safe right now," Boone told Region 8 News. "There have been a lot of break-ins."

And the thieves are only after one thing: cash.

Boone said she has an idea who is to blame.

"Young boys looking for change for cigarettes," she said. 

Hicks said four deputies with the Craighead County Sheriff's Department have been helping them patrol the area, but the thieves didn't have to work very hard to get what they wanted.

"Most of the vehicles we know about that has been broke into were unlock," Hicks said. "Please lock your vehicles up."

And just last week, burglars decided to target a home instead.

"We have one residence that was broke into, lady confronted him but it was dark inside so she couldn't see who he was or make any ID on him," he said. 

No arrests have been made at this time but Hick said they have some people of interest.  

"They have stepped up patrols, they're trying their best , they are," Boone said. 

And she has a message to thieves making their way across town.

"They best not come to my house," she said. 

Chief Hicks said if anyone has any information on these break-ins, please call the Caraway Police Department.
