Seven seasonal homes near the county line were broken into while their owners were away.
Door County Sheriff Terry Vogel says officers responded to a burglary complaint Tuesday on Sun-N-Surf Road in the Township of Union and while searching the neighborhood they found six other residences with signs of forced entry.
Vogel says investigators will have to wait until the owners inspect their homes to know for certain whether or not any items were stolen. Five of the seven homeowners live in Illinois while the others reside in the Fox Valley.
Since the homeowners last visited in December, Vogel says it’s difficult to pinpoint a time that the forced entries happened. The investigation is ongoing.
