                    Break-ins expected to climb in country

                    Lafayette County Sheriff’s investigators were kept hopping last year as home burglaries increased rapidly throughout the holiday season.

                    Investigator Scott Mills said while less burglaries have occurred in the county compared to this time last year, he expects things to pick up quickly. Many of the recent burglaries show some signs of semblance, however Mills said he and the other investigators aren’t sure they are all related. (December 2, 2010, Page 1A)
