East Ridge resident David Crownover walked in his front door July 20 to find that burglars had ransacked his master bedroom, grabbed jewelry and taken off with his safe.

"The police said that I was the second that morning," he said. "And while they were here, they got a phone call and said, 'Now there's been three.'"

East Ridge police are trying to solve at least three burglaries in the usually quiet neighborhood near the intersection of Ringgold and South Germantown roads. They believe the incidents are connected, police spokesman Officer Erik Hopkins said.

"We have some suspect information on those cases and are actively following up on leads in all three," he said.
