The crimes have taken place in Schaumburg -- within three blocks -- on either side of Weathersfield Way between Walnut Lane and Roselle Road. There have been three residential burglaries and two attempted residential burglaries in the area.
Police say suspects took an undisclosed amount of jewelry and cash.
It appears most of the burglaries happened Thanksgiving day, but one was reported this past Monday.
In four cases entry was made or attempted by kicking in a door. The other home was entered through an unlocked window.
