Hinds-Madison area: daylight burglaries continue

Some Hinds and Madison County residents are up in arms. They are reporting a rash of house burglaries.

Recently officials arrested three men connected with burglaries in rural Madison County.

Ken Strait told us Friday other homeowners are ready to defend their property. He says the intruders are ripping off anything they can within minutes of entering houses.

The area being targeted is rural, in northern Hinds county and western Madison county. Homeowners are reporting burglaries are occurring during the day according to Strait.

"Fifteen to twenty minutes, whatever, they are out. They are gone," said Strait. "They are hitting fast, so neighbors, look out. If you see a vehicle you don't know check it out, look at it. And that's all we can do."

Strait said people are on-watch for suspicious vehicles.

We are told some families in the Clinton, Bolton and Flora area plan on meeting with the Hinds County Sheriff to officially establish a community patrol and watch group.
