JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police are investigating a string of burglaries across the city.

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.
