Virginia Street as well as several of the cross streets in this area. Items ranging from loose change, tools and lawn care equipment were taken in the break-ins.

According to police, Central Dispatch received six calls of break-ins on Tuesday and ultimately a call to 2325 W. Franklin Street. At this address Officers discovered that Jeffery D. Lovell left his wallet with identification and a pocket knife inside a Jeep that he had broken into and stole several items. With Lovell’s wallet left at the scene of the break-in Patrol Officers went to the last known address known for him (2456 W. Virginia Street).
