LAKE COUNTY -- The Lake County Sheriff's Department is investigating a string of attempted home burglaries on Auburn Road.
Police say three homeowners on Auburn Road reported attempted break-ins. In each instance, someone has tried to pry open doors, windows or other openings in an effort to get inside.
Witnesses have reported seeing a man on a bicycle with a back-pack coming from one of the driveways. Other witnesses have reported seeing an older-model black Buick or Pontiac moving slowly through the neighborhood.
The Sheriff's Office says residents should keep their doors and windows secure, keep the outside of their homes adequately lit to discourage criminals and report any suspicious activity to authorities.
Anyone with information regarding these attempted burglaries should report their information to the Lake County Sheriff's office at (440) 350-5620.
