For some people in Whitefish Bay, home does not feel as safe these days.
"I was a little worried as a single mom. What's going on here? I can't sleep with the windows open now?" asked Carrie Wendt, a Whitefish Bay resident.
Wendt said she is new to the neighborhood.
This past weekend, both Shorewood and Whitefish Bay experienced a different kind of thieving.
"In the last four days, Whitefish Bay has had four burglaries where the bad guys have gone into the victim's houses while they slept. Two of the houses were unlocked. Two of them, they cut the screens and screen porches," said Whitefish Bay Police Chief Michael Young.
Whitefish Bay police believe the incidents are related. One of the stolen cars had been recovered as of Monday, Aug. 20. With information being left behind by the crooks, police said it is only a matter of time before arrests are made.
But like a good fishing hole, the thieves keep coming back. Police say if residents want to stay safe, they should start by locking their doors.
"All of us have to look out for ourselves in a new way," said Wendt.
If you have any information on these burglaries, you're urged to contact police.
