A community in Lexington has suffered from three burglaries in the past two days, and many more in the past few months.

On Wednesday, Lexington Police say they've made a major break in the case.

According to police, that break came when officers responded to another burglary in the neighborhood on the 600 block of Estrella Lane.

That adds to a list of burglaries in the neighborhood that have people feeling unsafe in their homes.

Police say, they were able to work with today's victims to track one of their stolen electronic devices to a home a few blocks away on the 1400 block of Day Lily.

Police officials tell ABC 36 they received permission from the homeowner to search the property and found thousands of dollars of stolen electronics hidden inside the home. Police say most of those items were taken from homes in the neighborhood.

Police took two teens into custody during the investigation, police tell us they are both juveniles.

Lexington Police were able to cheer up some of the victims of the recent burglaries by returning some of their stolen items.

Police say they haven't been able to return all of the items recovered, just yet. That's because there were so many stolen electronics recovered from multiple cases. They tell ABC 36, they hope to have the stolen items returned as soon as they can contact all of the victims.
