The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Department is investigating numerous burglaries and thefts that have occurred in housing developments in the rural Mankato area recently. The latest incidents took place at the River Heights subdivision and around the Terrace View golf course. Authorities say that footprints at the scene indicate that the suspects checked as many as 50 units, and they appear to have only stolen items from homes, vehicles or garages that were left unlocked. Officials are urging residents to make sure their property is locked, not to leave valuables in vehicles and to report any suspicious activity.
