According to reports, the apartment doors appear to have been pried or forced open. Once police learned of one incident, they checked other units and discovered multiple burglaries.
All but one of the burglarized units were in the same breezeway.
Items taken include expensive laptops and televisions.
Although police talked to neighbors, no one provided additional information. As of earlier this week, no arrests were made.
