JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are investigating a string of burglaries across the city.

Several happened in the downtown and west Jonesboro area.

On Sunday, two women told officers someone broke into their apartment in the 2200-block of Belt Street.

According to the report, the suspect stole a DVD player, television, Chromebook, purse and an iPad.

Police did not find evidence of a forced entry but did find a screwdriver that did not belong to the women.

In another case, a woman in the 200-block of Arlington reported her apartment had been broken into.

According to police, her door had been kicked open. The victim was missing a television and two radio/CD players.

The woman suspected her former roommate but, according to the report, no one has been arrested.

Officers responding to the burglary also noticed the vacant apartment next door had been broken into.

A woman on Rains Street said her home had been broken into in a separate incident.

According to the police report, the woman told officers that someone tried to break into her home by removing a screen window.

It’s unclear if anything was stolen.

In north Jonesboro, a woman on Easy Street said someone broke into her home and stole two televisions.

According to police, the woman suspected a relative was behind the theft after she received a text message asking if she was at home.

It's unclear if any of these break-ins are related.
