ZACHARY, LA (NBC33) — Police in Zachary are looking into a string of home burglaries. Since last week about a half a dozen homes have been broken in to in the middle of the day, while the homeowners are at work.
Zachary Police Chief David McDavid said they're not sure yet if the burglaries are linked in any way, and the burglaries have been taking place across Zachary.
One homeowner we spoke to said the break-in has shattered her sense of security in her hometown.
“I've lived in Zachary my whole life. I’ve heard of break ins. never had it happen to me before though. It definitely gives you an uneasy feeling. Since that time we've had an alarm system installed in our home,” said Brandy Westmooreland, one of the break in victims.
She says she's just hoping people in Zachary will become more vigilant and hopefully catch the people responsible.
