The Jasper County Sheriff’s Office says an unusually high number of recent thefts and burglaries have been reported.
In most cases, the thieves are targeting homes during the day, while people are at work.
The last reported event happened while a woman was in her home with the doors locked. She told deputies two men came to the door, knocked loudly, and then checked other doors to see if they were unlocked.
