Police investigating a series of home invasions in south Minneapolis

Seven of the burglaries have occurred in the area since April 22nd.

Minneapolis police are urging residents to lock their homes following a string of brazen burglaries in the Phillips West, Central, Ventura Village and Midtown Phillips neighborhoods.

According to a Friday Facebook post from the police department, the break-ins all happened while the victims were home:

Seven burglaries have occurred since April 22, and "all involved weapons (knives or guns)," but the release didn't elaborate any further on that.

However, no serious injuries have been reported, police say.

Though the investigation is still underway, the burglaries appear to be related and "may involve more than one suspect."

Anyone with information on these crimes is urged to call 3rd Precinct Crime Prevention Specialist Kali Pliego at 612-673-3482, or email her at kali.pliego@minneapolismn.gov.
