Police are investigating 13 unsolved home burglaries, the majority of them are reported in the Affton area. The first of the break-ins was reported November 7th, but there were six just last week.
It's unclear if the same people are behind all of the break-ins. In most cases, the crook or crooks forced a rear sliding glass door or window open.
All of but three of the cases happened in the daylight or evening hours (between 10 a.m. and 8:25 p.m.). Three cases happened in the early morning hours (between 1:20 a.m. and 5:40 a.m.).
Saint Louis County Police are working with two vague car descriptions. In separate cases, witnesses reported seeing a white van and a green Ford sedan in the area.
