SCHENECTADY – Three burglaries over the last two days are keeping Schenectady Police busy.

They say the incidents took place late Wednesday and Thursday nights. All three burglaries happened between the Stockade area and Wendell Ave on the north end of the city.

All three homes were occupied at the time of the burglaries and property was taken from each one.

Police say the burglar or burglars got into the homes by removing a screen and climbing through the window. Schenectady Police do not have any description to give to the public but officers are canvassing the neighborhoods and reviewing surveillance cameras.

Police urge you to lock your doors and windows whenever possible. They say a screen provides little security and can easily be removed.

Anyone with any information on the burglaries are asked to call Schenectady Police Department at 518-788-6566.
