Police are searching for one or two men accused of burglarizing at least five homes and entering by either breaking the door or window of the residences.
The Huntley Police Department issued a Nixle alert Tuesday morning warning residents about the burglaries.
“Several residential burglaries/attempted burglaries have been reported in the Village of Huntley over the last 48 hours. The incidents have occurred in neighborhoods throughout the village. We ask all residents to remain alert for suspicious activity in your neighborhood,” the police department said.
On Sunday, a burglary was reported in the 11600 block of Joan Avenue. On Monday, four more burglaries were reported.
Police said that the Monday burglaries occurred between 2-7 p.m. in the 10500 block of Yellowstone Drive, 11300 block of Central Park Boulevard, 12800 block of West River Park Drive and 13200 block of Vineyard Drive.
Huntley police believe there are one or two male suspects, in their later 20s, darker complexion and they possibly cover their face during the break-ins. In each incident, the suspect or suspects forced entry by breaking a window or door.
“We are working with multiple law enforcement agencies in McHenry and Kane counties who have reported similar crimes. The Huntley Police has increased patrols in the residential neighborhoods based on data collected. We ask residents to be vigilant in their homes and neighborhoods,” police officials said.
Anyone with information or video of the above incidents are asked to contact the Huntley Police Department at 847-515-5311.
