Lincoln police are investigating an increase in storage unit burglaries. Police say there have been 47 storage units broken into throughout the city in the last month. Total loss and damage is valued at $30,000.
A total of ten storage unit businesses have been burglarized. Cornhusker Self Storage near N. 36th and Cornhusker Highway has the highest number of break-ins with 16.
Police say it's too soon to tell if the burglaries are related.
"Lincoln police officers have been made aware of this crime trend. They have increased their patrol of the storage unit facilities and we're also talking with management about the importance of proper lighting and quality video surveillance," Officer Katie Flood said.
Police say four additional burglaries were reported just yesterday. Still no suspects for any of the burglaries.
"People who have storage units, it helps if you identify everything," Officer Flood said. "If you use identifiers like initials, it speeds up the process and helps with the chance we recover your items."
