Rocky River has experienced a rash of residential burglaries in the past few months and Police are asking residents to contact police if they see anything out of the ordinary.
The most recent have been daytime burglaries while the residents are at work. It appears that the persons responsible are knocking on doors and if there is no answer they enter the homes by forcing windows or doors.
The items that have been stolen in these burglaries range from cash to large flat screen televisions.
As of this time we have no description of the suspects or any vehicles.
