February 24, 2009 5:59:19 AM PST
Smyrna Police say burglars have been preying on vacant homes in the area in recent weeks. Police said Monday that several homes near downtown have been targeted and in the last two weeks several homes were burglarized during the day.

The burglars are targeting homes with for sale signs in the yard and other homes where they think people won't be home.

Lt. Norman Wood suggests residents ask friends to check in on their homes or filling out a request form to have police check in.

No arrests have been made in the string of burglaries.
