Shorewood police say an unlocked home was burglarized overnight on Friday in the 2500 block of East Lake Bluff Boulevard.
The village has experienced a slew of illegal entries to homes — 15 since Sept. 27 — and in most cases, the homes are unlocked. Neighboring communities have also reported an increase in home burglaries.
The department is working closely with other local law enforcement to buck the trend. Shorewood police have made one arrest in connection with an earlier burglary.
