Police are asking Richland residents to lock their doors and vehicles after a recent spike in break-ins.

Since the start of February, burglars broke into 11 homes where people left their doors open or unlocked, police said. Many electronic devices were stolen from the homes.

In central Richland, items have been stolen from several unlocked vehicles, police said.

Richland police are asking citizens to call 911 if they see any suspicious people or vehicles in their neighborhoods. The dispatch center can be reached at 628-0333.
