WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Police are investigating a number of break-ins in the Ardmore community. Investigators say they've occurred over the past several weeks with the latest happening Wednesday morning.

"We saw the police and dogs while walking this morning," said longtime Ardmore resident Florence Curtis speaking of police using a K-9 to search for a suspect Wednesday. "It's a quite nice neighborhood and its unexpected for something like that to happen here."

Investigators say they are looking at a suspect of interest but their could be more. One victim, who didn't want to be identified, said she and other neighborhood victims were robbed during the mid-morning hours right after most left for work.

Police say many of the items stolen were for easy resale like electronics.

"It's always difficult to hear things like this," said Ardmore resident Karen Appert. "This makes you feel like you need to watch around the neighborhood a little bit more than you usually do."

If you know anything about these break-ins you are asked to give Winston-Salem Police a call.
