HIGHLAND PARK (1080 KRLD) - Highland Park police are warning residents to beware of a gang of house thieves. 

The burglaries started back in November of last year with the latest one occurring last week. Lt. Lance Koppa says the method is the same. He says they often target credit cards, which have been used after the thefts before the homeowners know they've been hit.

In addition to the 5 incidents in Highland Park, authorities believe the crew is responsible for 8 offenses in University Park.

Koppa says because they have never found any evidence of forced entry, they want to remind homeowners to lock all their doors at night.
