SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - Police are searching for suspects who have stolen jewelry from several homes throughout Shelby, Rush, and Hancock counties.
Homes in the counties have been the target of burglars who take jewelry while the residents are away, our partners at the Shelbyville News report.
"Right now our investigators are working with the other county's investigators to see if any of them are connected so we can stop these guys," Shelby County Sheriff's Department Maj. David Tilford said.
