Residents in a Lower Merion town are reeling after thieves hit several homes Tuesday afternoon.

Four seperate break-ins occured just blocks apart from one another around the Narberth neighborhood.

"It was really kind of, not what you think of as a burglary," said Scott Brown, one of the victims. "The first inkling that we may have had is my wife noticed that our dresser drawers were open."

An investigation is underway to determine whether or not the robberies are connected.

In November Lower Merion Police told NBC10 they had already investigated 213 home and business break-ins for the year. The Township reported the highest number of robberies in the last 10 years in 2010 with 226.

The incident is pushing Brown to add a security system to his home. "I'll be going to get an alarm," he said.

Lower Merion Police say if you are planning on being away from your house for more than 24 hours notify them so they can check on your property.

They also advise community members to get back to basics by locking doors and leaving some lights on when away from home.
