Lower Burrell police think two daytime break-ins in the same neighborhood this week may be related.

Detective Lt. Robert Galvanek said the break-ins occurred on Monday and Tuesday in houses on nearby streets behind the Kmart.

• On Monday, someone broke a front glass door to get inside a residence in the 200 block of Kentucky Drive. An undisclosed amount of money and electronics were stolen.

The break-in occurred between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

• On Tuesday, an undisclosed amount of jewelry was reported stolen from a house in the 300 block of Michigan Avenue.

The break-in occurred between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The houses are only a few blocks apart.

Because it's usual to have daytime break-ins and because of the proximity of the homes, Galvanek said police are trying to determine whether the same burglar might be involved.

Galvanek said a young man and woman, both white, were seen near the Michigan Avenue house around noon, but police are unsure if they were involved.
