Police also responded Thursday morning to a pair of similar burglaries near Elver Park. Earlier this week, police responded to the city’s west side to investigate a string of car thefts.

Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call the Madison Police Department at 608-255-2345 or Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
