HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - Seven houses in three subdivisions on Blue Ridge Mountain were broken into Monday, police said.
In most instances, the break-ins occurred during the day and were accomplished by kicking in doors, police said.
The break-ins occurred at houses in Harpers Ferry Campsites, Keyes Ferry Acres and Blue Ridge Acres, police said.
West Virginia State Police, who were investigating five of the break-ins, declined to say what items were taken from the homes.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department was investigating two of the break-ins and another at a house in Blue Ridge Acres last Friday, said Sheriff Everett Boober.
A laptop computer was stolen from one of the homes and a purse and some video games were taken from another, Boober said.
