Boston Police report they are investigating five housebreaks in the three neighborhoods over the past couple of days - four of them in which they have evidence the burglar or burglars entered via a window.
The news comes just a few days after police warned a trio of kids were going around the South Street area in Jamaica Plain, grabbing whatever they could through open first-floor windows.
In the latest incidents, police say the thief or thieves hit: 70 Edgemere Rd. and 106 Margaretta Dr. in West Roxbury, 121 Sycamore St. in Roslindale and 82 Jamaica St. and 32 Mozart St. in Jamaica Plain.
The times of the burglaries have varied from 12:47 p.m. to 12:07 a.m.
Police are urging residents to lock their windows - especially basement and first-floor windows.
