Police said the burglaries have all involved knives or guns and have been reported in the Phillips West, Central, Ventura Village and Midtown Phillips neighborhoods since April 22.
In a news release, the department said early investigation indicates the burglaries are related and may involve more than one suspect.
The burglaries occurred while the residents were present, but no serious injuries have been reported.
Police are reminding everyone to lock their windows and doors, and also urged people to talk to their neighbors about the incidents and ask them to be alert to suspicious activity.
