WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - West Point police say they are seeing a rash of burglaries in the community.
The last two happened less than 24 hours ago.
Today, June 13, police received at least two calls reporting burglaries. It is believed the burglaries happened during the night.
One burglary was at a home, the other was a car. Both happened less than a mile apart.
Since the spring, the city has seen nearly 50 burglaries.
"That just the burglaries, not the other crimes like sexual assaults, aggravated assault and so on," said Investigator Rameriez Ivy. "That's how it's rolling on us. By the time we begin one case, we're being called to another."
Ivy says patrol officers will be enforcing the city's curfew.
People under the age of 17 are not allowed to be out from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday through Thursday.
On Friday and Saturday, they are not allowed out from midnight to 6 a.m.
Police believe juveniles are likely the culprits of these crimes.
