Police in Warwick are investigating a rash of burglaries as residents take extra precautions against intruders.
According to police, the first burglary occurred on August 15 along Route 94 South. Police say a week later, the burglars struck twice in the same day, hitting a home on Horizon Farms Drive and another on Stonehenge Road. The latest break-in took place Monday on Iron Mountain Road.
