PASCO, WA- Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies are asking you to keep your eyes peeled, as a series of burglaries strikes the northern part of the county.

The sheriff's office posted about the burglaries about a week ago on their Facebook page, but Undersheriff Dan McCary told NBC Right Now they have been investigating the string of crimes over the last month.

People in about a ten mile radius in the Eltopia, Basin City and Mesa areas have reported 10 different burglaries recently, 70% of those happened in Basin City.

Deputies say this person, or multiple people are taking guns, TVs, tools and other commonly stolen household items. They are breaking through doors in houses to get them.

"We made an arrest of a individual in the Basin City area, unassociated with the burglaries, however... There is a possibility that this person was associated with the burglaries. Since that time, the burglaries have stopped, so that may or may not be a coincidence," explained Undersheriff McCary with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
     
Since the arrest of that man on November 30th the burglaries have stopped, the last reported one was on the 20th of last month.

However, deputies say they have two vehicles of interest, the first is a four door cream colored Toyota Camry with tinted windows, the other is a dark colored sedan.

Undersheriff McCary says just this past weekend he received a picture of a suspicious car in an orchard, his deputies are investigating, but it will take the public's help in tracking down those responsible.

McCary says if you see something suspicious, call 911 and report it right away.
