Hillsborough police have investigated 24 residential burglaries since August 2012, with the last reported Feb. 1, when a Zion Road resident reported $64,223 worth of jewelry taken after an afternoon burglary to the property.
That brings the total value of items taken in the burglaries at $143,921.
Police received a steady stream of reports through much of the fall of 2012 and into January, with only October reporting no burglaries. During that span, the incidents appeared to increase in frequency in western neighborhoods of the township.
The map indicates the burglary reports by month (color of marker), amount of property stolen (large markers indicate more than $5,000 in property stolen), and general location of the burglaries.
